Sam Choy's Kitchen recipe: Tamarind Chutney

2 cups tamarind
4 cups warm water
4 tablespoons salad oil
2 chili pepper, minced
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 teaspoons curry powder
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
1 cup sugar
Salt, to taste

Soak tamarind in warm water for 2 hours or until soft.  Break up and squeeze the tamarind by hand until the seeds are loosened from the sacs.  Strain through a large hole strainer.  Discard seeds and fiber.
Heat oil in a heavy pot.  Saute the chili peppers and onion until golden brown.  Add curry powder, garlic and grated ginger, and sauté for 2 more minutes.
Pour the tamarind juice along with the sugar into the pot, and cook over medium heat for 45 minutes or until the chutney thickens; stir frequently.  Add salt to taste.  Cool and store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
