Photographer's Note

Here is the freshest of the tamarind I could get for you. Well, its one of the most used spices in the South Indian Cuisine. Well one of my friend's from Bengal had a comment about Andhra's like spice and sour food!! Well, the sour was all about the tamarind.

Well this very well known spice of India, is not acually Indian by Origin, but a native of tropical Africa. (Anyways, its called 'Tamarindus indica" though Indica referring to India). Well from Africa, it reached India and got adopted so well..later it moved to the Arab world, where they referred to it as "tamar hindi" (Indian date, from the date-like appearance of the dried pulp).

The tree has long been naturalized in the East Indies and the islands of the Pacific too.

Well the uses are many many fold..we use it in many pickles, chutneys, make rice dishes with the tamarind paste, well mostly the ripe fruit is used, the raw fruit is also used to make a pickle, well the juice a bit used in some curries...and many more to say..if you wanna know...just visit my home....:-))
