Tamarind paste is the topic of a new website. The product is a common ingredient which is found in many delicacies throughout the world. The paste in various forms, including Tamarind pulp and Tamarind sauce, is prepared from the sticky and sour fruit of the tamarind tree. The Tamarind fruit is found in bean-like pods and is believed to have originated from Asia. It grows in nearly all tropical areas around the world, including India, Africa, and Mexico. —
Thai cuisine includes many delicacies which include Tamarind juice. The ingredient is a critical ingredient in most Thai recipes, particularly those which are for savory dishes. Tamarind candy is another way in which the fruit can be used.
For the individual who wants to prepare the paste at home, it can be a taxing process. It requires that the fruit is separated from the pod and the seeds be removed from the pod. Once the seeds are separated from the fruit, then the tamarind is boiled. When it has cooled, it can be stored in an airtight container. The cooled fruit paste will somewhat resemble molasses, also known as tamarind paste. Typically, the preferred course of action is to purchase the product ready-made from a local store or online.
The paste is a predominantly Asian and Indian ingredient and can be found in Asian and Indian food stores. These locations may also stock pulp and sauce of the Tamarind. Some convenience stores may carry the products if the local population is made up of large contingents of Indians and Asians. In addition to some local outlets which may carry the products, there are numerous stores on the World Wide Web which exclusively carry ingredients from various parts of the world. It is likely that tamarind will be found in such online specialty stores.
