Tamarind Paste is the deep reddish-brown pulp of the ripe tamarind fruit which grows in pods in the tall Tamarind tree.
Tamarind offers tangy acidity, used as a sour addition in recipes. You'll often find it paired with sweet ingredients to balance out its bold acidity.
Originally from Africa, tamarind is now grown in a variety of tropical climates and found in the cuisines of Mexico, the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia.

The Asian variety of tamarind is more sour than it’s Mexican counterpart says Nik Sharma, who prefers it for its versatility. Use it in the Caprese Salad with Sweet Tamarind Dressing (p. 60), the Date and Tamarind Loaf (p. 210), or the Ginger and Tamarind Referesher (p. 228).
