Tamarind Blocks – Tamarind is the acidic, dark-brown to black pulp from the pods of an enormous tree. The pulp obtained is well dried and compressed into cakes (Blocks).
Literally meaning the Arabic Tamr Hindi or “date of India”, this spice originally came from Eastern Africa. But now it is being cultivated all over the tropics and is a valued food ingredient in many Asian or Latin American recipes.
Tamarind is actually the fruit pod produced by a tall, semi-evergreen tree grown primarily in India. The beans and pulp within the pod have virtually no smell, but have an extremely sour taste. Tamarind is available in whole pods, a compressed block, paste or as concentrates and is most likely found in Asian markets.
It is often used to make juices, soups, chutneys and bean dishes. The dried Tamarind is obtained after removing the rind from the mature, ripe and dried fruit of Tamarindus indica. The product has exceptional quality and is free from any visible mould fungus, rodent excreta, artificial colouring and polishing, obnoxious odour, deleterious substances and other impurities except to the extent provided under special characteristics.
Tamarinds are slow-growing, long-lived, evergreen trees which have 3 – 8 inch long, brown, irregularly curved pods in abundance along the new branches. As the pods mature, they fill out somewhat and the juicy, acidulous pulp turns brown or reddish-brown. When fully ripe, the shells are brittle and easily broken. The pulp dehydrates to a sticky paste enclosed by a few coarse stands of fiber .The pods contains flat, glossy brown, obviate seeds embedded in the brown, edible pulp.
Tamarind is generally used in India as paste or pulp in addition to its being a main constituent in our daily food preparations. India holds the credit of chief producer of this crop. This extremely sour fruit is available in whole pods, compressed blocks, paste or concentrate. It is used as a base for spicy and sometimes sweet sauces. It is often the main ingredient in juices, soups, chatnis and bean dishes.
