Make It A Meal: Serve an appetizer before Curry Chicken

(4) Visitor Comments:

  • Awesome! Didn't have any tamarind pulp, but these were still great!!! Thank you!

  • These were superb! I made them for Valentine’s Day dinner as an appetizer. I substituted 2 tsp. tamarind chutney for tamarind pulp, since I couldn’t find the pulp. The dipping sauce really makes these special.

  • The use of honey in this recipe is too overpowering. To make the dipping sauce more like the restaurant's, I substituted light Karo syrup for the honey.

  • If you follow this recipe exactly, you will get the EXACT recipe that tastes like the restaurant. Superb!
