pomegranate molasses.. (you should get it at any middle eastern grocery store) or simply boil down a bottle of pomegranate juice (with no additives) till it thickens, 1 liter of juice yields about 1/3rd to 1/2 a cup (less if you really thicken it)

mix some fresh lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, and a dash of ketchup (I don't have measurements - I do everything by taste)

Tamarind paste has a strong fruity body, so in desperate times, if Panfusine's advice for pomegranate molasses is also an impossibility, I'd go for a very high quality lemon marmalade, or mango chutney, or any other sweet-tart fruity mix. They won't have the same depth as the tamarind, but they will do the trick.

Totally agree with nogaga. Keelers lime marmalade comes to mind,

Quince paste would also work. Whole Foods carries it in the Specialty Department.

Is quince paste just boiled quince, or more like a jelly Sweetened? Thank you.
