A cooking ingredient made from the tropical tamarind fruit, which is used as a souring agent with a sour, tangy and sweet flavour commonly used in South-east Asian Cooking.
Tamarind is a fruit that grows in wood vaneer-like pods. When the fruit is ripe the insides become dark brown and sticky like gummy candy. The flavour is deeply sour, sweet, and a little tangy.
