Dear Friend,
Tamarind does not require any introduction.Without Tamarind, functioning of kitchen will be difficult.Chakravarti S Venkatesh gives a very interesting input about the name of this tree.This is what he says,
" Tamarind derives its name from the Persian Tamar-i-Hind,meaning in that language the Date of India.Originally a native oftropical Africa,it is now widely planted and naturalized everywhere inthe tropics of both the hemisheres."
Attaching two images of flowers of Tamarind.
