A Tamarind Cooler6
Tamarind Syrup
You will find compressed blocks of tamarind at an India grocery store. This is an inexpensive, but very satisfying beverage for all ages. Great drink to have with any of my Indian Curry recipes.

2 cups sugar
5 cups of your favorite bottled water

Tools
heavy bottomed sauce pan
measuring cups
strainer

Tamarind and Water in Sauce Pan

Cut off a 7 ounce piece of the tamarind block and pull it apart to create small chunks... put the pieces into a heavy bottomed pan and add 5 cups of water.

Bring this mixture to a boil and steadily simmer boil until reduced by half (about 20 minutes).

Remove from the heat and pour through a strainer and leave to drip into a clean bowl.

In a fine glass filled with ice add:
2 tablespoons Tamarind Syrup
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon lime or lemon juice

top it off with your favorite brand of bubbling soda water and stir... yummy!

I haven't experimented yet, but I think this would be great on roasted sweet potatoes...

BUY Thailand Wet Tamarind 14 ounce package.
