Tamarind Water
Tamarind lends a distinctive sour taste, helping to
balance out the sweet, salty and hot flavours. I buy a whole slab from
the Asian specialty store, keep it in a sealed container in the fridge
and break off a little piece as I need.

To Use: the piece of tamarind is soaked in
hot water for 20 mins. the water takes on the Tamarind flavour and it
is this that you use once it has been strained. Press the tamarind paste
thru a strainer to extract as much flavour as possible
