Recently I bought this Raw tamarind and red chilies in farmers market, they chilies are so fresh and the stems are green and the raw tamarind is very tender I barely see any seeds in it. I actually don’t know what to do with this fresh produce 😥 , so I asked my neighbor and tried her recipe… OMG 😮 it’s really yum… just loved it, a bit spicy though but still a must try recipe. It’s spicy, tangy taste goes well with ghee rice :-D.
