Are you looking for an easy, no-bake treat? Then, try these homemade Tamarind Balls. All you need to make them are four ingredients: tamarind paste, sugar-free sweetener, hot sauce, and salt. Tamarind paste is made from tamarind, a tropical fruit with a sweet and tangy flavor. You can find tamarind paste in the international aisles of major grocery stores.

Mix all your ingredients to make the Tamarind Balls, reserving some sugar-free sweetener for rolling. Form your mixture into balls, then roll the balls in the sweetener. Then pop these balls in your mouth for a sweet, sour, and spicy flavor explosion.
