Tamarind block is one of the best products we vend with. These blocks of tamarind pulp are the tamarind fruit pods stripped of the outer husk and compressed tightly together.

Tamarind has multifarious uses; many Southeast Asian dishes just wouldn't be the same without a few healthy spoonful of sweet-sour tamarind. It is also one of the cardinal ingredients in Thai cuisines.

In Thailand and some countries in Latin America, you may see tamarind juice offered as a beverage. That beverage is nothing but water flavored with tamarind pulp.If you like the taste of straight tamarind, you can try soaking the leftover tamarind fibers in water for a refreshing drink or chewing on the fibers for a little snack!

The fruit of a tropical tree, tamarind is a paramount spice in most south Indian kitchens. Today, India is the only country which is producing tamarind at a commercial scale.

* It can also be diluted with warm water to acquire tamarind water, used to prepare appetizing drinks.

Most brands of prepared tamarind pulp in the market are too flimsy and watery. When you buy the watery prepared tamarind pulp that comes in a plastic tub, you get mostly water and exasperatedly diminutive amounts of tamarind for your money. But when you buy a block of shelled tamarinds from the leading exporters like us, then you get 100% tamarinds and no filler. So it makes your every penny count.
