Tamarind has a unique tang, which is quite different from lemon, tomatoes or other tangy ingredients. From dals and curries to gravies and South Indian dishes like Sambhar and Rasam, tamarind water is a great value add.

You can make a batch of Tamarind Water and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for around a week.
