Tamarind rice, simply to put together , It is a sour and tart flavored rice with lentils and peanuts. It is prepared on all special occasions at our house. I personally love temple style tamarind rice. It just tastes so yummy and flavorful .Some people do add some coriander seeds too, personally I do not like that flavor in tamarind rice. My mother in law makes the best tamarind rice after my mom .So many friends have requested me to post this recipe . So here you go guys . I made the paste before and then added with rice ,which is the easier method .It tastes best the next day. It stays in refrigerator for 2-3 weeks ,if used properly.
