  30. Madam, I am highly impressed and I am going to try this now!!!

  31. I am going to try this ! Tomato and tamarind together.. you have my undivided attention!
    I do have a question:

    Can I use canned diced tomato, if yes, how much? (winter tomatoes are so tasteless, to get good taste, I'm afraid, I need to use canned)

    1. Hi, I am not sure about the canned tomatoes quantiy. My be 1 and a 1/2 or 2 will be working.

  32. I cant stand the pungent flavor that emits from tomatoes which chopping or even for eating, but i just wanted to give this version a try and i was doubtful till the end if it would turn out gud? will it be ok for my family members tastebuds, but gr8 it turned out well unexpected, the tamrind, and tomato combo was gud i made more in quantity by adding lil more besan than suggested here, but i guess dry roasting the besan ahead seperatly would be much better as i found it difficult to roast the besan in the oil seasoning itself it became kind of lumps when aded to seasoning oil, i just wanted to share this part, so that new learners mite not get panic over the situation :) keep updating more ive been trying manythings from ur blog occasionally cheers~! for the hard work
