This is a drink that is made from the juice of the tamarind tree. The name comes from the Arabic word ‘tamr Hindi’, which means ‘Indian fruit’. The pod-like fruit of the tamarind is boiled to extract the flavours, sweetening and then cooling it. It has a sour, yet sweet taste.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g tamarind paste
200g sugar

Method

  1. Cut the tamarind into small pieces, then add 1 litre cool water. Heat until boiling to get the required orange colour.
  2. Drain away any impurities, sweeten with sugar and stir until dissolved.
