    Sharon123's Note:

    Even if you're not a tofu fan, these crispy nuggets are hard to keep out of your mouth. The recipe includes tamarind, an herb native to India that has been cultivated for its pungent acidic flavor since prehistoric times. Tamarind can be found as a frozen paste, a liquid concentrate, or fresh in pods. The porous tofu soaks up the tamarind's bittersweet flavor and forms a caramelized crust around each bite with the tamari, ginger and garlic. The crunchy roasted sunflower seeds add contrasting texture. These are excellent hot from the oven or chilled. Adapted from Whole Foods.

      I like everything in this, except the tamarind, which may be my mistake. Wondering if my 'tamarind concentrate' is something different from tamarind paste called for, because in this large amount it was completely overpowering. I decided not to assign any stars because I think there must be a difference, and hopefully this post will save someone else making the same mistake. I will definitely try this again because I think the rest of the ingredients would be good together...only next time I'll add in touches of my tamarind 'concentrate' at the end, during the cooking stage of the sauce.
