“Tamarind Balls” are popular throughout the Caribbean and are available year round. You can even find them at our local Chinese supermarket "T&T". “Tamarind Balls”  the sweet & sour delight are especially popular. Some versions include hot pepper making it spicy. This spicy treat is basically tamarind pulp with scotch bonnet peppers, garlic and golden brown sugar..... “酸豆肉丸”在加勒比地区非常流行,一年四季都能吃到。您甚至能在当地的华人大统华超市里买到酸豆。甜辣口味的“酸豆丸”尤其受欢迎。有些做法会放辣椒吃起来更过瘾。这样辣辣的小食其实用酸豆肉,苏格兰辣椒、大蒜和黄糖就能做到…… tambran 02 tambran 01 Ingredients: 200 grams of tamarind – a little less than 8 ozs 1/2 scotch bonnet pepper (or any hot pepper you like) 2 cups golden brown sugar 3 tablespoon white sugar (granulated) 2 cloves garlic 原料: 200克酸豆-差不多8盎司 1/2苏格兰辣椒(或者您喜欢的辣椒品种) 2杯黄糖 3汤匙白糖(粗粒) 2瓣蒜 tambran 03 Method:

  • Break up the tamarind mixture into bite-size portions
  • Shape them into balls

  • Store in a cool area or the refrigerator
The final step is to spead the granualted sugar on a plate and roll the tambran balls to give it that extra finishing touch. You can always set them in the fridge to chill a bit and remain in it’s ball like shape
  • 用手将混合后的酸豆糊揉成团
  • 再将团分成一口大小的块状
  • 捏成球形
  • 依口味在黄糖里滚一下增加些许甜味
  • 存放在阴凉处或冰箱内
最后一步是在板上洒上细糖,把酸豆丸在糖里滚动一下,算是画龙点睛。您可以随时将它们放置在冰箱里冷藏,以便保持丸子的形状。 tambran 05 CCEDE107_tamarind-balls_s4x3_lg
