Tamarind concentrate

  • Equal amounts of white vinegar or cider vinegar or rice vinegar or dry white wine and brown sugar

  • 1 part lime juice, 1 part water, or 25% dark brown sugar (example:  1/4 lime juice, 1/4 water and 1 tbsp.)
  • lemon marmalade or mango chutney
  • quince paste
  • ripe mango, dried apricots, prunes and a few tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Keeler's lime marmalade
  • fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and a dash of catchup

Tamarind paste

  • Equal parts of dried apricots, prunes, dates and lemon or lime juice in blender and make paste. 2 tbsp of this for every 1 tsp. tamarind paste.
NOTE:  This is not the real thing, however in a pinch it can work. Not to be used in large amounts.
