Native to India, tamarind is a tangy, multi-purpose herb that’s widely used in Southeast Asian cuisine. It is a valued food ingredient in many authentic recipes originating in Mayalsia, Thailand and Indonesia. The sour and fruity taste of tamarind merges seamlessly with the heat of chillies, and gives dishes their hot, sour character and dark colour. Tamarind can be stored in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic bags for upto 180 days and used when required.
