Sweet tamarind, from the Tamarindus indica tree, is a tropical fruit cherished for its rich, tangy-sweet flavour. Enclosed in a brittle brown shell, the sticky, fibrous pulp is enjoyed fresh or used in cooking and beverages. Widely grown in India, Thailand, and Africa, sweet tamarind is a key ingredient in chutneys, sauces, and desserts. Its distinct taste and versatility make it a beloved addition to both traditional and contemporary cuisines.
