Tamarind, common name for a evergreen tree, of the pea family. the word tamarind translates to date of India, this explains why it is also referred to as the Indian date. 

The tamarind tree produces a sweet and sour fruit. It is native to Asia and northern Africa and is also grown in the Caribbean. Like lemon, tamarind brings an acidic zing to food.

Tamarind is best known for its use in Worcestershire sauce, originally an Indian recipe. Sometimes, tamarind seeds are roasted and used as flavoring. In parts of East Africa, tamarind is the base of refreshing iced drinks and sweets. The fruit of the tree contains 1 to 12 large, flat seeds embedded in a soft, brownish pulp. This portion of the fruit is widely used Asian cuisine.
