Tamarind is a fruit that grows in wood veneer-like pods. When the fruit is ripe the insides become dark brown and sticky like gummy candy. The flavor is deeply sour, sweet, and a little tangy. This fruit is popular in most the world minus North America where it is usually used as an ingredient in steak sauce.
Tamarind powder is made from dehydrated and ground tamarind. The flavor is highly concentrated as opposed to fresh tamarind and is intensely more sweet-and-sour. The flavor is often used to add a puckeriness to sauces, chutneys, lentil and legume dishes, and pickles. In Western kitchens, chefs often use tamarind powder to craft BBQ sauces, ketchup, pizza sauces, and as a seasoning for wild game.
Use Tamarind Powder to mix with marinades, barbecue sauces, smoothies or dried herbs and spices to create unique dry rubs. Can also be added to curry dishes, couscous, and rice for added spice.
