Imli candy, also known as tamarind candy or tamarind paste candy, is a popular type of candy in many parts of the world, especially in South Asia and Latin America. It is made from tamarind pulp, which is extracted from the tamarind fruit. Tamarind is a tropical fruit known for its sweet and tangy flavor.
To make imli candy, tamarind pulp is mixed with sugar, salt, and sometimes chili powder or other spices to create a sweet, sour, and spicy flavor combination. The mixture is then shaped into small candies, often in the form of bite-sized squares or rectangles, and coated with sugar or a sweet and sour powder.
Imli candy is known for its unique taste, which is a blend of sweetness, tartness, and spiciness. It's a popular snack and treat in regions where tamarind is abundant and is enjoyed by people of all ages. It can be found in various flavors and variations, with some being more sweet and others more spicy, catering to different taste preferences.
