Notes

The marination mixture that is the tamarind spiced mixture may be watery as it absorbs all the juices overnight it will be perfect . Adjust the water content as you wish. And amount of tamarind taken is less because we like it less tangy, if you wish to add more. You can adjust accordingly when mixing the rice.
