Pholourie pt. 1 with CaribbeanPot

Here’s how to make tamarind sauce or tamarind chutney, as it’s called in Trinidad and Tobago. A condiment for popular street foods such as pholourie, aloo pie and doubles. Join Chris De La Rosa as he shows you his quick and easy recipe for making this lovely tamarind condiment with a sweet and tangy flavor and a hint of heat from scotch bonnet peppers.

For this tamarind chutney you’ll need…

12-14 tamarinds
1/2 scotch bonnet pepper diced
1/2 onion diced
2 scallions diced
2 tablespoon chopped shado beni (or cilantro)
1/2 teaspoon salt (see note below)
2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves garlic (diced or crushed)
2 1/2 cups water + 1 cup
1/2 lime (juice)

Note – depending on how tart (sour) your tamarind is you may need a bit more salt and brown sugar
