[QUOTE=caliking;2334521]I'm so jealous. I thought India had great streetfood until we went to Thailand. The flavors were just absolutely amazing. And you're right - its the balance of flavors that blew us away. Forgot to mention the sugar as you pointed out!
Had a couple of large tiger prawns & a squid BBQed over charcoal for lunch. They served a dipping sauce that I guess had just about the same ingredients as your marinade except they use lime & not lemon. The dipping sauce so fantastic that one could almost eat your fingers by mistake. The BBQing was also spot on - just cooked. Wow!!!
