It took me quite a bit longer to prepare and a little longer to cook as I don't have a pressure cooker and I added the coconut after the tamarind and coriander leaves at the end. It was delicious with a side dish of carrots, pepper, and kala chana, cooked with mustard seed, red chilli and coriander, mushroom rice and chapattis. - 11 Aug 2015
