Tandoori Tamarind Honey Baked Chicken Wings

Heighten the flavor of wings this Super Bowl Sunday with a touch of the sweet and sour taste of Tamarind.

Tamarind is a fruit in a pod, grows on the tamarind tree, a tropical semi-evergreen native to East Africa. The pulp inside the pod is what's used for cooking; it is a staple of Indian, Caribbean, Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese and Latin cooking.

The tart flavor of Tamarind, along with its caramel, floral, and smoky notes, adds a brightness that's more complex than lemon juice or vinegar.
