Fish Tamarind/Kokum: I managed to score some kokum. The softer kind, not the black, hard one. I have one fish curry recipe, but would love some other ideas on what to do with it. And, for bonus points, thoughts on the differences between the two kinds...pauljoseph, I'm counting on you!

Thanks, I'm looking forward to the pork recipe!

So, how different are the flavours of the kodampuli and the kokum?
