Delicious sweet, sour and spicy star fruit soup with Asian catfish is authentic recipe from Vietnam. Authentic recipe used tamarind pulps but I substituted for tamarind powder because it easier and faster to cook, and it taste just as good. It is one of the best Asian recipes in South East Asia. Vietnamese people like  to prefer cooking this kind of food for serving their family and friends. To learn more Cambodian recipes Please visit: Cambodian Cooking
