Tasted totally sour. No-one in my family would eat it. I would not recommend to anyone, ever. Unless you are fond of tammarind. No seasame at all.

Very good. I love strong flavors, and this was absolutely delicious and was an excellent accompaniment to a chicken curry dish I made. Cut back the tamarind paste a bit if you prefer a less sour taste.
