Strain this liquid through a sieve and bring it to the boil to kill all impurities. Boil for about 10 minutes and strain this liquid through a fine mesh strainer and reserve for later use.
2. Make sugar syrup by boiling together water and sugar until all the sugar has melted. Cool and keep the syrup aside for later use.
3. To make sherbet, mix together tamarind juice, sugar syrup and cold water and place this mix in an ice cream machine and churn until the liquid turns to ice.
