Tamarind pulp is made from the citrussy flesh inside the tamarind pod. Though the tamarind fruit is related to peanuts and chickpeas, the brown-red concentrate has a sticky, date-like consistency with distinctively tart and fruity flavours.
Unlike tamarind paste and concentrate which can be thin and watery, tamarind pulp is made of 100% shelled tamarind pods and hence a small amount goes a long way in recipes.
Tamarind pulp is often used in Thai cooking, it is diluted into a popular Mexican drink called agua de tamarindo, and is even thought to be one of the mystery ingredients in the original Worcestershire sauce recipe.
Soak the pulp in lukewarm water for 15-20 minutes before use. This natural pulp does still contain tamarind seeds, so be sure to remove them before blending the tamarind into a thick puree. Try using it in a sharp, citrus-flavoured dressing for fish, Pad Thai, or sneak some into the toffee sauce of a sticky toffee pudding. Or make your own tamarind water and freeze in an ice cube tray so it's ready to use whenever a recipe calls for it.
