Tamarind extract?

Soak the tamarind in a cup of water, squeeze it to pulp in the water. Strain the tamarind juice into another vessel through your fingers. Add another cupful of water to the tamarind pulp and extract the remaining juice a second time. Mix the first and second extracted tamarind juices. We can store the tamarind extract refrigerated for 8-10 days and use it as needed.

I read somewhere that tamarind extract can be freezed as cubes in the tray and used later(Instead of just putting it in a vessel inside the fridge..)

From the vessel you might drop less or more sometimes but with cubes you can't go wrong. You can judge the no of cubes you might need for a recipe..


PS: I liked your Chicken Tikka Masala and I will to try it this week..

vkn, thanks for adding my blog to your links list.
Regarding tamarind, I do the same way as you explained. Sometimes when I am in a hurry and I forget to soak it, I microwave it with a little water and extract the juice.
