Date Tamarind Dip is served with various Indian snacks and meals. Coriander powder, ginger-garlic paste, and dates are such ingredients that add health to this sauce. For a thick sauce, only use a cup of water instead of 3 cups. If you want to use it later, don’t add tempering over it and store it for about 30 days in a freezer in an air-tight jar.
