Amchoor
Grounded Spices
 

Unripe green mangoes are dried and powdered to make amchoor powder, a tart pale beige to brownish powder used in dishes where acidity is required. Amchoor is used to add a sour tangy fruity flavor without moisture in northern Indian dishes. Used in stir fried vegetable dishes, soups, curries, and to tenderize meat and poultry.
