      This is so great, thanks Chia! And so easy! I have a tub of tamarind paste in my fridge - was thrilled to find another use for it. Made the recipe exactly as written and wouldnt' change a thing! Had to tame down the spice mind you, for kids at the table. Even without the full force heat, it was fab. I could see making this with other proteins as well. Surprisingly my husband loved it, and anything labelled curry, or with coconut is usually a no go for him. I think the tamarind is what makes this. I served this with "Caribbean Rice in a Rice Cooker". Delish! (Made for ZWT5, Cooks w/Dirty Faces Team).

      Wow Chia, didn't let me down again absolutely gorgeous. I made exactly as stated except tomato, I don't like them, added some red pepper instead, what wonderful flavours but I knew when I read the ingredients this would be good. I served mine over red chili coconut rice absolutely perfect. Ate way too much as I made too much rice so had seconds with the left over sauce. A winner will become a regular. Huge thumbs up:)
