What a great combination: Capsicum, dal and tamarind. I didn't expect such a harmony of these ingredients. This curry is an indulgence for the sense of taste. It's gonna be a dish of my standard cooking repertoire.
Even the teaspoon of fennel seeds features a very special background taste. Furthermore it's easy to prepare (even for foreigners like me ;-) and it doesn't cost too much time and effort. Thank you, Anitha.
