Organic Tamarind Paste (Tamarindus indica) is made from Tamarind which is a sour – sweet fruit pod. Tamarind imparts a tangy – sweet flavour to a dish. It is also known as the Indian date. The Tamarind tree is native to Africa but also grows in India, Pakistan and many other tropical regions. The tamarind sauce made from organic tamarind is pure in flavor, delicate in taste, rich and delicious. Tamarind paste tastes very sour, with a somewhat citrusy taste. It does have notes of smoke and caramel as well, making for a complex flavor profile.
