this mildly flavored rice is succulent and the tang from the tamarind is perfect to proportion, leaving a pleasantly tingling after taste...also that surprise element- the crunch from the urad dal is just what this soft textured needed.. Loved it!

The acidity of the tamarind is just right! it does not over power the dish but gives that tangy flavour to the rice.
