This is a delicious sweet and tangy dipping sauce which is very unique and difficult to describe. If you’ve never tried the tamarind fruit, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
- 1/4 cup chopped cashews
- 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 2 medium garlic cloved - minced
- 2 green onions - chopped
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 3 tsp honey
- 6 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp tamarind pulp
- 1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
Combine cashews, hoisin sauce, garlic, green onion, cayenne pepper and black pepper in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth.
In a small sauce pan add oil, honey, rice wine vinegar and tamarind pulp. Then heat on medium for 1 minute, stirring until the tamarind pulp is completely dissolved.
Add the sauce to the cashew mixture and process further until smooth.
Pour into a serving bowl and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
