My friends and I experimented with Tamarind Juice yesterday. It was really very hot so a tall glass of a refreshing drink was most welcome.
1 C. Tamarind pods.
(We used the Tamarind pods Celine brought from San Pablo. I suppose the secret is to use sweet tamarind.)
2 C. boiling water
1 C. brown sugar
2 C. ice
1-2 C. cold water
Soak the tamarind pods in boiling water for 10-20 minutes. Strain the mixture and add brown sugar. Pour in a pitcher half-filled with ice. Dilute with water. Serve really cold.
Ahhhhhh sooooooo good!!!! Maybe if you garnish with a sprig of mint it would be perfect?
We had it with our lunch, Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso.
I instructed Hermie to follow the directions at the back of the Knorr Sinigang sa Miso pack. I bought my fish from Rustans Rockwell and it tasted so clean and fresh. I get frustrated sometimes when the it tastes like mud.
The day before, Jing and I had lunch at Ukkokei Ramen Ron along Pasay Road.
I ordered the Miso Ramen with Butter and Corn.
Jing had the set meal with Miso Ramen.
I forgot what the other items were.
Jing said the ramen was too much for one person, she said we should have split in one serving. I told her, maybe if it was merienda I could but not for lunch.
At least, I was able to satisfy my ramen obsession. I do not think I will eat a bowl in a long while. I am all ramened out!
