Dried at low temperature for taste and benefits.

Green mango powder, also known as amchoor, is a citrusy seasoning made from dried unripe green mangoes. The fruit are peeled, thinly sliced, then sun dried. Finally, they are ground into fine powder. The fragrance smells similar to honey and the taste is sour and fruity. Some enthusiasts consider it a perfect balance of sweet and sour. The spice is used widely in north Indian dishes, finds its way into samosa and pakora fillings, as well as being featured in stews, fruit salads, pastries, curries, chutneys and pickles.

Green mango powder (amchoor) can make a great substitute for lemon or lime juice in a recipe, especially if you don't want to add moisture. Since too much of the flavor could be overpowering, always start with a small amount, approximately 1/2 teaspoon, then add more to taste. Note: green mango powder should always be added towards the end of cooking since heat can damage the flavor.

Note: Indus organics green mango powder is made by freeze drying process. It is packed in foil bag to protect it from moisture. Please avoid any moisture after opening the bag.

Indus organics mango is grown in India under sustainable organic methods.
