Top Tip: Tamarind paste


This is the first in a few “top tips” I’ll be publishing. Think of them as tiny morsels of curry based wisdom.
Now, on to the tamarind paste. If you find the tamarind paste is very thick and packed full of rather unpleasant pips or stones, squeeze the tamarind paste out of the packet or jar into a bowl and add a table spoon of boiling water. Give it a minute or so and you will be able to use a fork to remove the stones, leaving you with lovely soft tamarind paste.
