Frequently Asked Questions
What can I use instead of tamarind?
If you do not prefer tamarind, you can substitute it with kokum. Use 3-5 pieces of kokum or as required depending on the taste.
How to make the curry extra spicy?
You can add a teaspoon of red chilli powder along with the green masala paste while sautéing it. This might change the colour of the curry slightly.
