Fay, this is a wonderful recipe and I would recommend it to anyone new to Indian cuisine. It's definitely worth the effort taken in searching around for the tamarind paste/fenugreek seeds. I had been wanting to recreate the scrumptious fish dishes tasted in S. India and this is the ticket (keeping in mind that we don't have the same types of fish in the US, nor fresh tamarind paste). Thank you! I look forward to trying more of your recipes!
