    Brian Holley's Note:

    This is a dish from the region of Andhra Pradesh. A valuable side dish to accompany curry or as a side dish for biryani. Simple to cook, and very different from the usual tomato curries to be found on Zaar. Nb. If you dont have tamarind, the juice of a lemon will do, just make the liquid up to one cup.
