Hand Blended Ingredients: dried, powdered mango
Made from thin slices of unripe green mangos that have been sun-dried and ground into a fine powder, amchur is perfect for adding a tart fruity taste and acidity without adding additional moisture to your dishes. Commonly used to flavor samosas, pakoras, soups, stir fries, curries, and to tenderize meats.
Full of vitamins A, B6, C, D, and iron, amchur is an antioxidant powerhouse used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve digestion and is also known to help improve metabolism, skin health, and detoxifying the body.
To add acidity when additional moisture is not desired, substitute 1 tsp. of Amchur for 3 Tbsp. of lemon juice in marinades for chicken, fish, seafood or vegetables.
