Using fresh Tamarind pods make your own fresh homemade tamarind paste. You can use it in Indian cooking, Thai, Jamaican and Mexican. Add a spoonful to flavor curry, soups or even into meat taco mixes. In India it is used for a soft drink. Sort of like iced tea with an interesting tang or zing.

Tamarind water gives a perfectly balanced tart and sweet dipping sauce its attractive deep lemon color and out of the ordinary taste is just amazing. The sauce is delightful with Vidalia onion Fritters and other foods fried foods and chips.
Very easy, love the one post clean-up and it turned out quite tasty. I added brown rice (one of the variations), used fresh garlic, reduced the salt and chopped up a poblano pepper instead of green pepper. It made for very hearty servings and was very economical, less than $2 per serving. Meaty and satisfying.
