Tamarind is one of the main dish for Thailand and probably in the Philippines. When it is not ripe, they use it to make a sour ingredient for their recipes. Really don't know the exact name of the ingredient but, in the Philippines, I know one of their main dish ( as I know). They called it "sinigang". It is a choice whether it is a pork, beef, chicken or fish. They usually put tomatoes, okra, kangkong or swamp cabbage, taro plant, egg plant and onions.
this dish is somewhat like a soup but, it is really good. :)

It's also fairly common in Mexican cooking.

One of the best margaritas I've ever had was made with tamarind. They rimmed the glass with cinnamon. I'm starting to drool just thinking about it ...
