Meals with no-tamarind curry is one of our traditional gluten-free meal that brings me back nostalgic memories of relishing food as a child. This delicious flavorful meal used to be prepared by my mother with home grown vegetables. I still remember the mixed flavors of coconut oil, fresh vegetables & spices that filled our entire house. I & my siblings relished this lunch served with crunchy papads of unique flavor. In those days we never say “no” to any dish or vegetable or greens as most of the dishes were prepared with various combination of vegetables; and they were so flavorful as they were cooked in low temperature for longer time.
