Whever I eat this tamboli my mind flashes back to my childhood days in Karwar. We used to eat “pez“ (conjee) with this tamboli. Tambolis are a speciality of Konkani people. It is a very good accompaniment with rice and fried fish.
For tadka (tempering)
In a tempering (or seasoning) spoon, heat ghee and fry the hing to release the flavor; add green chilies and fry for a short time.
In a blender, grind coconut, tamarind, ginger and the above fried mixture; grind with a little water to make a fine paste
In a tempering spoon, heat ghee; when hot add rai and red chilies; when seeds start to splutter add to tamboli
