Help me save this gado gado!

ldillma | Oct 19, 201306:48 PM

Hi All,
I made this recipe for gado gado, from Spice Island Vegan. However, the tamarind doesnt say 1/4 WHAT. So I guessed, and used 1/4 cup, which I did via 2 T tam-con and 2 T water. It came out WAY too tamarind-y! Any suggestions of how I can salvage it and not have to throw out the whole batch? Was thinking add more peanuts, and maybe coconut milk and some fish sauce? But dont know if that will work and no idea on quanitities. Any help appreciated. I am not vegan, btw, just got the recipe from that blog, and the other things I have gotten from their Indonesian stuff has been great...
Thanks in advance!
1 1/2 cups lightly salted roasted peanuts
1 1/4 cup light coconut milk
4 garlic cloves
5 shallots cloves
4 Tbsp. palm sugar or brown sugar
Juice of 1 lime, about 3-4 Tbsp.
3 kaffir lime leaves
1/4 tamarind liquid from soaking dried tamarind paste in warm water
2 Tbsp. sambal oelek, or less for less spicy
1 tsp. salt, or to taste
1 Tbsp. white miso
1 Lemon, optional
1 Tbsp. Kecap Manis, optional
