    I made this today, it came out really good, but it was little sweet for Indian breads or rice dish(as per my taste bud) but perfect as a jam. So next time would add less sugar and little more pepper.
    I also chopped dates into smaller pieces and mashed the chutney with a spoon(while it was still warm) to give it a semi solid consistency with small chunks of dates and raisin in it!! :)
