Remove from the water and allow to cool. In a food processor, puree the minced garlic, tamarind paste, dark cane syrup, dark molasses, ketchup, water, black pepper, Essence, and salt together. Puree until smooth. Baste the ribs with the tamarind glaze, on both sides. Place on the grill and cook on each side. Basting often. Place the reserved glaze on the stove and bring up to a boil.
