Yumm

This is a condiment much used in India and elsewhere in Asia and the Middle East, in combination with rice, meat, and a variety of other dishes. It is compounded of such spices as turmeric, fenugreek, cloves, cumin, ginger, black and cayenne pepper, coriander, and caraway. When the pungent leaf of an Indian tree of the rue family is included, the powder is used not only as a stimulating flavor, but also for medicinal purposes. The paste is made from the slightly acid, jellylike pulp of the tamarind pod, combined with a variety of spices. Origin can be traced to the southern Indian word meaning sauce. Is used to refer to any number of hot, spicy, gravy-based dishes of East Indian origin. What?
