AMCHUR, AMCHOOR, AMCHOR, AAMCHUR

 

Also called just mango powder, Amchur is a spice made from green, unripe mangos, which are sliced, sun-dried and ground into a fine powder. It is used mostly in northern Indian cooking, especially vegetarian dishes, and gives a sour, tangy, fruity flavor to foods. Used in stir fried vegetable dishes, in soups, curries, and to tenderize meat and poultry.  Amchur can usually be found in Indian shops and grocery stores in the U.S.

One teaspoon of Amchur has the same acidity as 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice.
