Tamarind Powder, native to tropical Africa, is used primarily as a souring agent in spicy Indian curries, chutneys, fish dishes, stews, and rice pilafs. Now that it is gaining popularity worldwide, it is also common in Thai, Mexican and Mediterranean cuisines. With a tart flavor and fruity undertones, soak Tamarind Powder in water and then add to homemade BBQ and hot sauces or marinades for a sour kick. If you like experimenting with cocktails, rim a margarita glass with honey and tamarind powder for a uniquely fruity garnish.
