This is a really tasty soup that can also serve as a base for a meal. Sometimes at the Sugar Club we serve it with chicken or fish dumplings and lots of fresh coriander. You can also serve it with noodles, grilled fish pieces, shredded roasted duck or chunks of roasted pumpkin. You will need to use very ripe plantains to ensure the sweet taste that complements the sharpness of the tamarind. Look for fruit that is soft and has brown to black skin.
