Literally meaning the Arabic tamrhindi or ‘date of India’, this spice is originally from Eastern Africa, but now is being cultivated all over the tropics and is a much-valued food ingredient in many Asian or Latin American recipes. The fruit of a tropical tree, tamarind is an indispensable spice in most south Indian kitchens. Tamarind is actually the fruit pod produced by a tall, semi-evergreen tree grown primarily in India. The beans and pulp within the pod have virtually no smell, but have an extremely sour taste. Tamarind is available in whole pods, a compressed block, paste or concentrates and is most likely found in Asian markets. It is often used to make juices, soups, chutneys and bean dishes. The dried Tamarind is obtained after removing the rind from the mature, ripe and dried fruit of Tamarindusindica. The product is free from live insects, visible mould fungus, rodent excreta, artificial colouring and polishing, obnoxious odour, deleterious substances and other impurities except to the extent provided under special characteristics.
