In the Middle East, South East Asia, Mexico, South Asia, and the Caribbean, people use tamarind pulp to cook. The leaves and seeds of tamarind are edible, too. They can be used in sauces, desserts, chutneys, marinades and drinks. Tamarind pulp also becomes one of the ingredients of Worcestershire sauce.
