Used in Indian and Thai cuisine to which it imparts a sweetish tangy flavour. Dilute in warm water for a few minutes and add to your chosen dish. This souring agent is used for chutneys, dips, sweet and sour dishes.

The word tamarind means literally "date of India". This native of East Africa is now grown extensively in India, South East Asia and the West Indies. Made from the pulp of the fruit of the Tamarind tree, this distinctive spice is used to add a tangy sharpness to Asian cooking. It is also a standard ingredient in sweet and sour dishes, chutneys, soups and several dishes of South East Asia and India. The juice of the fruit is made into a refreshing drink in the Middle East and West Indies.

Usually it is the juice or paste that is used as a souring agent, particularly in south Indian and Gujarati lentil dishes, curries and chutneys, where its flavour is more authentic than vinegar or lemon juice. It may be used to flavour pulse dishes, rice dishes, or as an ingredient in sauces and side dishes for pork, fowl and fish. Tamarind contains pectin which is used in the manufacturing process of commercially produced jams, so it is a natural ingredient in many jams, jellies, fruit drinks, and is vital to Worcestershire sauce. In India, the ground seed is used in cakes. A refreshing drink made from tamarind syrup and either sparkling water or lemonade which is quite popular in the Middle East.
