Aloo Bukhara Chutney (plum Relish)

Recently made this as an alternative to imli ki chutney. Initially thought it wouldn't taste as good, but to my surprise it tasted better than tamarind chutney. It had the perfect balance of tangy & sweet...
I use this chutney in bhel and dahi wada and also at times have it on the side like an achar.
