Recipe Notes

  • Carefully remove the skin of raw tamarind otherwise you tend to lose the flesh pulp attached to string or fiber.
  • Adjust the quantity of cumin powder and green chilies as per taste.
  • I have used a little piece of ginger and small green chilies for the fresh tamarind are very tangy, it requires a lot more salt and spiciness to balance the flavor.
