Q: About a month ago, I decided to make pad Thai from scratch, and could not find the elusive tamarind paste in three grocery stores. This past weekend, I finally found it, and simply bought it on principle because I had been so frustrated looking for it. What else, other than pad Thai, can I use it for?!
