Tamarind is a hardwood tree known scientifically as Tamarindus indica. It’s native to Africa but also grows in India, Pakistan and many other tropical regions. The tree produces bean-like pods filled with seeds surrounded by a fibrous pulp. The pulp of the young fruit is green and sour.
The ripened pulp is packed into 200g packs by Nilamel, sealing the fresh taste and texture of the Tamarind.
