Just as tomatoes form the base for most north indian gravies, tamarind pulp is a vital raw material for most south indian gravy-like dishes. Instead of preparing tamarind pulp every time it is needed, you can prepare it in bulk and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, to use as and when required.
- Clean and wash the tamarind and add ¼ cup of warm water.
- Allow to stand for 15 to 20 minutes and mash it lightly using fingers.
- Strain using a muslin cloth or a sieve (adding little water if required).
- Tamarind water: to make 1 cup of tamarind water, add ½ cup of water to the prepared tamarind pulp and mix well.
