as far as possible use of tamarind shud be will destroy your teeth and bones in the long run...instead use tomato..Sanjay is too young to experience that..

Vah Mr. Sanjay your videos are really awesome and I feel very homely ( as if I am watching one of my mother's recipes on line). I love them. Your Chamagadda pulusu made me really nostalgic as now I hv got adopted to completely different(vijw) cooking style (though I dont like it much) where as I have a different(telangana) taste . I love my mom's side dishes alot and your recipes take me back to my past days. Thankyou very much for that.
