Thai Tamarind Candy Recipe

Postby HighHeelKitchen » Thu Jun 02, 2011 11:33 am

Thai Tamarind Candy:
3 cups Hot (not boiling) water
1 + 1/2 cups Tamarind paste
1 + 1/2 cups Sugar (palm or light brown) (up to)
2 teaspoons Powdered red chile
1 pinch Salt

Take three cups of hot (not boiling) water, and soak one and half cups of tamarind paste in it for about an hour, then squeeze the paste through a fine muslin cloth to extract as much juice as possible and then boil it to reduce it to two cups of tamarind juice.

Whilst still boiling, stir in one and half cups of sugar (suggestion is palm sugar, but light brown sugar will do), until fully dissolved, then add one to 2 teaspoons of powdered red chili and a pinch of salt and continue to boil and reduce.

Meanwhile get a few cold glass plates or saucers and, when you think the liquid is sufficiently reduced put a few drops on a plate and leave in the fridge for 5 minutes to see if it sets. Once it sets, pour all the liquid into a shallow tray and leave to set, then cut into bite sized pieces, dust with icing sugar and keep in a well stoppered jar.
