Pulinkote / Roasted Tamarind Seeds

Ingredients:
1/2 cup raw Tamarind seeds / Hasi Hunase Hannina Beeja

Recipe:
Remove the tamarind seeds from tamarind fruit, wash them and put them in a tissue paper to dry.

Dry roast the raw tamarind seeds in a pan for about 15-20 mins in medium high flame until it starts spluttering.

Once they are cooled to room temperature, remove the outer cover and enjoy! This can be preserved in an airtight container.
This is the real test for teeth as it is very hard and crunchy.

Oh thank you!

I love tamarind, and can't bear to throw away the seeds because they're so pretty.

I'm glad to know these are edible - will try them!

Best way to remove shell after frying?

I found that if you put the seeds in soil for a while the seed coating becomes softer and can be peeled off leaving the seed, though i haven’t eaten any yet and am not sure if they have to be cooked and some have even started to sprout roots!
