First time visitor to your blog-- very enjoyable!

Thank you Andhraflavour.

Thank you Uma

Thank you Seema

Thank you Ranji

Anonymous : Yes the soaked tamarind pulp has to be cooked in a pressure cooker.
This is so that it becomes soft like a paste.

Zlamushka Thank you for dropping by wonderful comment. Will try to participate your event. (Nalapaka is a word from Hindu Mythology. Nala was a king and he
was also an excellent cook. 'Paka' in sanskrit means savoury /
delicious dish. So in india (south india mostly) if someone wants
to praise someone's cooking they use this as a simili.)

Thank you ec

Thank you alka

Thank you raj

Thank you chef jp
