Too sour. No-one in my family cared for it. I would not recommend unless you are very fond of tamarind.

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 so...
