Using the back of a spoon push through the sieve and extract pulp. Place the tamarind pulp into a small sauce pan on low temperature adding salt, chili powder, cumin powder, brown and white sugar.

Mix thoroughly, simmer for 8 to 10 minutes until thick and set aside to cool before serving at room temperature.
