This is a sweet tomato chutney recipe, prepared commonly in eastern part of India. It can be served both hot and cold and can be refrigerated to be used for 2-3 weeks. The chutney can be served with Indian breads, plain rice, or as a dipper for any kind of spicy fritter, or just use your imagination to pair it with just about anything. Raisins can be substituted for the dates.
