New Thing #17: Tamarind Juice


I’m sure my Southeast Asian friends are going to hate me for this, but I just don’t like the taste of tamarind. At least not in any way that I’ve had to date.

When I’ve decided to use tamarind sauce in the past, it’s been in sauce form. I’ll try dipping my samosas or pakoras in it from time to time, waiting for that magical moment when I “get” why people like it. But I always find it overpowering the taste of what I’m eating, rather than complimenting it.

So I figured I’d try it on its own by opening up a can of tamarind juice from Thai Agri Foods Public Company Limited. An hour and a cup of tea later I still taste it on my tongue.
