Tamarind Block

In essence, tamarind is the fruit pod of a tall, semi-evergreen tree that is mostly cultivated in India. The pulp and beans within the pod barely contain any fragrance, yet they taste quite sour. Tamarind is most frequently found in Asian markets and comes in whole pods, compacted blocks, paste, and concentrates.


This spice, which literally translates as “date of India” in Arabic, was originally from Eastern Africa. However, it is now grown extensively across the tropics and is a prized component in many Asian or Latin American dishes.
