Patak's is awesome.... but it has too much sugar in it for my taste. My BF uses it all the time to make tandoori chicken on the BBQ.
I thought it probably had sugar in it too until I checked the ingredients on the website.

Water, Tamarind, Ginger, Salt, Coriander, Cumin, Garlic Powder, spices, Acetic Acid, Colours (E163, E122, E129), Lactic Acid

It has 17.8 grams ECC for 100 grams which is about 1/3 of a bottle. That's loads more than you need for a whole chicken and it's usually mixed with yogurt for marinating. So, it's not as bad as first thought.

If you like spice, Patak's lime pickle rocks with fried eggs and it's very low in carbs.
