About this deal

As with any intense flavour combinations, it’s always best to taste test as you go so you can ensure you get the perfect balance of sweet and sour. As we’ve mentioned above, tamarind paste is an incredibly versatile ingredient and is key to a variety of dishes, sweet or savoury. But, in case you’re feeling inspired, here are some of our favourite dishes that include tamarind paste.

Tamarind paste may also be available at your local supermarket in the international aisle, but we’d recommend buying from a Thai supermarket to support your local business! Minimum life based on 'use-by' date of product. Average life based on last week's deliveries. Life guarantee shown based on delivery tomorrow with the Life guarantee starting the following day. Our Patak’s paste tubes are 100% recyclable. Please recycle the empty tube and plastic cap separately to help us minimise our environmental impact.Incredibly versatile, tamarind paste is used in plenty of dishes from various cultures that vary from sweet to savoury. It’s also a key ingredient in some drinks!

All you need is tamarind pulp and water. After you’ve removed the pod and cleaned the tamarind, soak the pulp in hot water for an hour. Once it’s softened enough for you to detach the seed, push the pod-water mixture through a sieve and voila! Simply fry onion, ginger and garlic and squeeze in as much or as little spice paste as you'd like. Sizzle the curry spice paste to release flavours and add your green pepper and chopped tomatoes. Create your curry by adding prawns and simmer until all cooked through. Stir in fresh coriander to serve. Tamarind paste is derived from the fruit - specifically the pulp around the seeds - of the tamarind tree. This common hardwood fruit tree is native to Africa, but can now be found growing all across Asia and Mexico.Joining the earthy flavours of both tequila and tamarind can complement each other marvelously. Accentuate this with a little sweetness from simple syrup and then top off with the lively spice of ginger ale for a refreshing beverage that’s perfect for summer.

So long as it’s stored in a suitable container that’s properly sealed, you can store tamarind paste wherever you choose. You can use tamarind paste right out of the jar - simply scoop out the amount you need and stir it into your dish.

Types of tamarind

You should store tamarind paste in a cool dry place, so keeping it with all your other spices would be ideal. Much like lemon or lime, tamarind can add that little bit of bite to the otherwise rich flavours of coconut and sweet potato in many Southeast Asian curries. At first glance, it’s easy to say that tamarind paste isn’t the most appetising of ingredients. Surprisingly, the brown, gloopy paste actually has a sour taste that’s been compared to citrus fruits. Why not try using cauliflower instead of protein and create a deliciously fragrant curry that’s suitable for vegetarians?
