About this recipe: A take on South Indian tamarind rice recipe with the nutty addition of sesame seeds. This tamarind rice is a tasty addition to curry night that is exotic yet easy to make.
Don't have garlic or ginger paste? Just use the equivalent amount of grated fresh garlic and grated fresh root ginger.
For drier, fluffier and less starchy rice, wash the raw rice anywhere from 3 to 7 times under running tap water, till the water becomes clear.
Nice colour, but it's slightly too mild for me. - 26 Oct 2016
Too sour. No-one in my family cared for it. I would not recommend unless you are very fond of tamarind. - 08 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good. I love strong flavors, and this was absolutely delicious and was an excellent accompaniment to a chicken curry dish I made. Cut back the tamarind paste a bit if you prefer a less sour taste. - 30 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
