Nutritional values

This noodle dish is great for those with coeliac disease, because the rice noodles contain no gluten. In addition, the various onion vegetables protect against bacterial infections with their essential oils.

Tamarind pulp is obtained from the brown pod of the tamarind tree. The fruit is sometimes called "Indian date". It has a mild sweet-sour taste and is pleasantly fruity. It is better to use the marrow sparingly, as it has a laxative effect in larger quantities.
