    Lou van's Note:

    I've posted this after a request from another member, I've never tried it as we don't eat fish but its copied from "The Complete Asian Cookbook" by a fantastic cook Charmaine Solomon. She states that in Sri Lanka the acid used for this dish is called "goraka" but she has used tamarind as its easily available.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash and dry fish, cut into serving pieces.
    2. 2
      Soak tamarind in vinegar until its soft. (If tamarind is very dry, heat in an enamel saucepan for a few minutes adding some of the water).
    3. 3
      When cool enough to handle, squeeze the tamarind in the liquid to dissolve the pulp, strain through a fine nylon sieve and discard seeds and fibres.
    4. 4
      Put all ingredients into a pan (preferably an enamel or stainless steel pan) and bring to the boil.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until fish is cooked and gravy is thick.
    6. 6
      Shake pan or turn fish pieces carefully once or twice during cooking.
    7. 7
      Serve with white rice.
