Great! I love your videos. Vegetarian indian food is the best! I love Dhal with rice, and a nice Naan bread on the side!

i didn't love tamarind either, its kinda a acquired taste, i would guess you could use any kind of juice like orange or mango. maybe coconut. :) i'm not really sure just putting it out there
