Aamchur (Mango) Powder
Amchoor or aamchur or amchur, also referred to as mango powder, is a fruity spice powder made from dried unripe green mangoes and is used as a citrusy seasoning. Amchoor is a predominant flavoring agent used in Indian dishes where it is used to add a sour tangy fruity flavor without moisture.
Applications: Used to flavor samosa and pakora fillings, stews and soups, fruit salads and pastries, curries, chutneys, pickles and dals and to tenderize meats, poultry, and fish.
Tart, unripe mangoes are cut into slices and dried mechanically or by baking them in the sun. These leathery strips are then ground into powder called amchoor. Amchoor, as you can guess, is fruity, sweet, tart, and intensely sour from a large amount of citric acid. Amchoor green mango powder is commonly used in Indian and South Asian cuisines such as soups, stews, fruit and vegetable salads, and pakoras. It’s often added to breads, pastries, and desserts to add a candy-like fruit flavor. Amchoor is also a major ingredient in chat masala.
We’ve discovered two very western uses for Amchoor green mango powder:
- Add to pie. Any pie. A teaspoon will just add a unique layer of flavor that’ll hypnotize you. Oh, and we mean to add it to the pie dough. Yum!
- Make a rub for pork ribs using chipotle peppers, dried habanero peppers, salt, black pepper, and a good amount of amchoor. All together it forms a life-changing hot and sour rub that will blow away any BBQ traditionalists.
