The cooking method is not at all detailed and no mention about tamarind water , and coriander powder. Not a tasty recipe. Thanks!


the taste is not up to the mark.try with fried coconut paste and tamarind.


Why i choose average, because the cooking method is not well and nothing about tamarind.


This is an excellent recipe THx
