      A delicious recipe. Very easy to prepare, as well. I did not have tamarind but used fresh lime juice and a pinch of brown sugar. <br/>We served it over white rice. <br/><br/>Thanks for posting.

      Wow! One of the best, and simplest curries I've made! Yay! My husband loved it and Ioved that I didn't have to make a spice paste or toast anything. Very easy with great flavor. I used a red pepper and cod that I cut into large pieces. I will make again, thanks for the keeper!

      This was really lovely, and it was one of those rare dishes that the entire family enjoyed, from 9 month old to 3#$(* year old ;). Served with rice and sauteed zucchini it made for a very satisfying meal. I used only 1 T of tamarind b/c I was unsure how we would feel about the flavor, and I think it was a good choice for us. Thanks for posting, CJAY! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets.
