Tamarind Paste In Houston
Watching a Gordon Ramsey Ultimate Cookery Course show, a great cooking show BBC America 264 on DTV, tamarind paste was an ingredient. The wife-a-cita has looked at Fiesta Bellaire and Hillcroft and MY HEB on Bunker Hil plus other places to no avail, any suggestions?
I know I've seen it somewhere. My best guess would be an Indian grocer, tamarind is a very common ingredient in Indian food. You could also check out Spec's and Phoenicia. Both have inventories online that may help.
I have a brick I got at Hong Kong Market on Bellaire.
I'm sure 99 Ranch Market has it also.
I'm also pretty sure ive seen it at Fiesta and the bigger HEBs.
Can't say i've seen it at Phoenicia.
Go to an Indian grocery store like Patel Bros on Hillcroft and look for Tamicon. Its a thick syrup/paste type of tamarind concentrate. There is also Maggi Tamarina kind of like a tamarind sauce (think ketchup).
