Too diluted for my taste buds
I'm not sure how much actual tamarind is in here because the amount is not separated out in the ingredients. However, if you're used to tamarind concentrate, this will taste weak. It's fine if you only dabble in Indian cooking but not if you know your Indian spices and flavours.
Not as sharp or smooth as tamarind conentrate
This doesnt have the sharpness or smoothness I am used to with tamarind, but then I ususally find a tamarind concentrate. Tesco used to sell obe but I can't find it now. Possibly it is good and I am just unfamilliar with this kind.
Ready made for those short on time!
Awesome product for Indian dishes and also very convenient for those short on time!
Very good product. Brilliant in curries.
Perfect for curries of many types. Good taste (sweet / sour) Recently used in one of my madras curries.. perfect. As to the person who gave the product a 1 star for containing Sodium benzoate: Well D'oh!!! Sodium benzoate is a salt of benzoic acid, which is widely used as a food preservative (with an E number of E211) and a pickling agent. Extra: Is Sodium Benzoate Safe? Sodium benzoate is generally recognized as safe and can be used as an antimicrobial agent and flavouring agent in food with maximum usage of 0.1%. It's also generally recognized as safe (GRAS) when used as a preservative in feed.
Great for Pad Thai
This is delicious in a pad Thai sauce, I use three dessert spoons of this, one dessert spoon of sugar and one of fish sauce and a sprinkle of chilli flakes, add it to fried onion and garlic and it comes out so good. Love it.
please replace it with natural one
IWHY do you have to spoil it by adding this chemical Sodium Benzoate?
I love this tamarind paste. Tesco didn't stock it
I love this tamarind paste. Tesco didn't stock it for a while and I tried two others but they didn't taste of much; this is really tangy. I would say it's more of a sauce consistency than a paste though.
Amazing product! very convenient and tastes great.
