Tamarind paste is a tart, fruity pulp. Our tamarind paste is a natural product, that has not been concentrated and mixed with sugar syrup. We, therefore, advise soaking in water before use and removing any seeds and pips.
The paste is derived from the Tamarind tree, which yields long seed pods. These pods have a hard, brown shell that contains up to 12 seeds. An edible sour, fleshy pulp surrounds these seeds and is known as tamarind paste.
Tamarind paste provides an essential flavour to many Indian, Indonesian and Thai dishes. However, the versatile paste is also used in many kitchens around the world. Latin American and Caribbean cooking specifically use tamarind paste in barbecue sauces and marinades.
