Hi ! I have a question- I want to make Chole Bhatura today . The recipe states 5cm of tamarind . Does that mean a 5cm Square ? 5cm x 5cm? Can anyone give me the weight of the tamarind to use as that would I better or even a better idea of how much tamarind to use . I’m a complete novice to cooking so please mind me if I ask ridiculous questions! Lol

@Renu Devi but don’t be frightened off Renu, tamarind is a useful flavour and gives a sauce a great gloss 😉

Hi @Renu, I agree with Hari, just taste it and adjust it to your liking.
I use tamarind a bit and was very wary the first few times. 😂👍🎅

Hi @Renu great to see you start the process. Yes pretty much but tamarind can really vary in how tart it tastes depending on if it’s a block etc so if you like the tang you can use more. Taste it to see how tangy it is. Does that help?
