Dorty, I just love the recipes that you post. My husband and I really enjoy Indian curries and chutneys. We come from Durban, so need I say more! Tamarind is not so easy to obtain in Harrismith, so will wait until I make a trip to Dbn to buy some. Keep the recipes rolling. They are so delicious! Carolyn SA
