1. Soak the dried fruits overnight in 1 1/2 cups of the water. Meanwhile, prepare the cumin seeds and chaat masala. When ready, drain the fruits, reserving the water.
2. In a large non-reactive saucepan, mix together the jaggery and 2 cups of the water (disregard any lumps they will melt when heated), and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until all the lumps dissolve completely, 3 to 4 minutes. Pass through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any impurities. Return to the pan. Mix in the mango or tamarind powder and up to 2 cups water, including the reserved fruit-water in this measurement. Mix well and bring to a boil over high heat.
3. Add the drained dried fruits, fresh and dried ginger, chaat masala, salt, and black salt, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally and adding more water if the sauce thickens too quickly, until it reaches a semi-thick batter-like consistency, about 10 minutes. Adjust the seasonings and transfer to a serving bowl.
4. Heat the oil in a large nonstick wok or saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cumin seeds they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Quickly, remove the pan from the heat, add the paprika, and mix into the chutney. Serve at room temperature, or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate about 2 months, or freeze about 1 year. Just before serving, mix in ripe fruits and serve.
