The wonder of the Tamarind Tree
I believe not many are aware that the ingredient used for making Worcestershire sauce is none than the Assam (Tamarind). 😄
These fruits are long, brown and contain several hard and flat seeds surrounded by a juicy pulp.
Matured when the flesh is coloured brown or reddish brown.
Well cultivated for its sweet-sourish fruit pulp used locally as “Assam”.
The fruit is harvested by pulling the pod from its stalk.
Ikan Masak Pedas is also a dish that requires the Tamarind juice.
One of my favorite dish is Prawn cooked in Assam sauce.
