While you can buy puréed tamarind, ready to go, the flavour is not that great. Better by far is to make your own and it’s not hard – a block of tamarind pulp is easy to find in Asian grocers and will keep for ages in the refrigerator. Whenever you need some tamarind water just break off a piece of tamarind, soak it briefly in boiling water, work it into a paste and sieve it to get rid of seeds and tough fibres.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g tamarind pulp, (with the seeds; not tamarind purée)

Method

  1. Soak the tamarind pulp in 400 ml boiling water. Break it up a little with a whisk, then leave until cool enough to handle. Using your hands, break the mixture up into a rough paste. Pass the mixture through a sieve; you should get about 375 ml tamarind water.
