Kitchens Of Africa - 'Mombasa' Tamarind Simmer Sauce (12OZ)

Kitchens Of Africa - 'Mombasa' Tamarind Simmer Sauce (12OZ)

Sweet and tart tamarind, contrasted with an exotic spice blend, balanced with spicy heat, complemented with notes of garlic, and fresh herbs. Complex and vibrant.

This tamarind-date sauce is inspired by Shidni, a delicious and irresistible Somali chutney usually reserved for special occasions such as feasts. Shidni has many variations but the base recipe usually calls for a combination of either tamarind and dates or tamarind and mangoes – seasoned with xawaash (a Somali spice blend).

In this version, sweet dates and tart tamarind are simmered for hours in a fragrant infusion of fresh ginger, garlic, bell peppers, and cilantro; then seasoned generously with an exotic spice blend that includes cardamom, cloves, and star anise. The result is a bold and tantalizing sauce that is slightly sweet, sour, savory, and spicy – all at once. It’s hard to resist!

A perfect substitute for enchilada or barbecue sauce, and makes the most delicious AfroBeats Pad Thai to rival any restaurant version.
