I added a bit of honey into the glaze after reading other reviews, but otherwise made it exactly as written (hint - found CHEAP 6-pack of tamarind paste on Amazon). This was incredibly flavorful - it's a strong smoky cumin-y flavor, but I loved that paired with the sweet/sour glaze. They cooked perfectly in the oven - have never done ribs off the...
