      WOW!! This is EXCELLENT!! I'll admit I was a bit leary but YUMMMMMMM!!! I brought the eggs to aboil & shut the heat. Let them sit for a bit, then peeled & dried them. The idea being that I didn't want them overcooked. They brown up VERY quickly in the hot oil! And be sure not to overfill your pot. ;) I probably used more than 2T tamarind - I used a regular tablespoon not a measuring TB. I was very worried it would be too sweet. What I did worked out perfectly for us. I made 8 eggs for 4 people. Dh went & fried an extra couple eggs for himself. I served this over basmati rice. Absolutely delicious!! Thank you!! Made for My 3 Chefs 11/08.
