Fish with Tamarind

Having moved recently I am well chuffed that one of the local Indians - the Spice Merchant in Henley is absolutely superb.It's quite pricey but definitely worth it. We have found a new dish there - that they call Rampar ka Kurma, which is fantastic - a deep sweet & smooth korma, but with a real tart overtone.

So, imagine my surprise (and delight) when we I decided to cook from the Food of India this dish called Fish With Tamarind - and low and behold it was almost exactly the same basic flavor as the Rampar Kurma. Not surprising I suppose - given the core ingredients of cream and tamarind - but a result none-the-less.

Some fish !

Plenty of black mustard seeds

We added a couple of cooked eggs

And there it was....almost the same basic taste and color. I shall experiment with chicken and will be a happy man
