  2. 1 litre ice cold water,

  3. 125 grams caster sugar,

  4. Crushed ice

Tamarind (Tamarindus indica), a leguminous tree native to India. The brown, bean-like pods contain a tart, sticky pulp used to flavor drinks, candies, sauces (including Worcestershire sauce), curries, preserves and chutney. Tamarind trees are grown throughout temperate and tropical regions of the world, especially in Africa, southeastern Asia and Mexico.


  1. Blend the sugar, tamarind paste and half (1/2 litre) of the chilled water together until everything is thoroughly blended, using a beater or blender.

  2. Pour into a pre-cooled water jug. Add the remaining chilled water and mix in the caster sugar. Stir well to dissolve the sugar completely. Store in the fridge to keep cold.

  3. Serve ice cold in pre-cooled glasses.

  4. Optional: Some people like to add some salt and/or crushed green chillies too. If you like chillies, try and experiment the taste.

  5. Enjoy. Perfect on hot days to cool the body down and quench thirst.
