With its tan, sandy appearance, Amchur (or amchoor) powder looks unassuming. But breathe deeply, and then have a taste. This tart spice reveals sweet and sour complexities, juicy and fresh with the flavor of tropical mango and citrus undertones reminiscent of sour orange. There are floral top notes and lingering just in the back, almost out of sight, is the smallest hint of pepper. The product of unripened mangoes that have been dried and ground into a powder, Amchur is a good source of calcium and potassium and is naturally gluten free.

Amchur powder retains many of the nutrients that are found in unpowdered mangoes. Unripe mangoes have a higher concentration of vitamin C than they do of vitamin A; when the fruit ripens these nutritional values flip, and the ripe fruit has more vitamin A. Because of this high concentration of vitamin C, Amchur has traditionally been used to treat the deficiency disease scurvy, and was most often put to this use during winter months, when fresh fruit was unavailable. It was usually mixed into water in a 2:1 ratio with jaggery, a form of unrefined cane sugar juice, and taken at night.


Tips From Our Kitchen


Use Amchur powder wherever you need a tart, citric boost. This fruity, sour powder would be wonderful on food like chicken or fish, so add it to the breading for our Lemon Parmesan Fish and Asparagus or add half a teaspoon to the spice mix for Chicken Biryani. Amchur powder is a staple of Indian cuisine so toss over some chickpeas, along with earthy turmeric and some black pepper, and roast for a simple chana. Add to feta whipped with olive oil for a tart vegetable dip. Stir it into simmered onions and fresh mango for a tart boost to mango chutney. Amchur is not an aggressive spice so when making soups or curries add it toward the end of cooking time to preserve its flavor. Add to tomato soup or potato pancakes that are seasoned with coriander and cumin.

Use one teaspoon of Amchur for three tablespoons of lemon juice in marinades for chicken, fish, seafood or vegetables.

Our Amchur powder is cultivated in India.

The spice that brought me to Spices, Inc.! I've spent the past several months refreshing my whole spice pantry (of about 150 herbs, spices, and blends). I was having trouble finding amchur in a small amount. After a quick Google search, I discovered Spices, Inc., whom I'd never hear of. I'm so glad that I found them and that I bought this amchur! Because of the moisture and sugar content of mangoes, it will clump over time. The product I received from Spices, Inc. was nice and powdery, indicating that it's very fresh. Yes, you can substitute lemon or lime juice for this product. But the taste won't be the same. If you do a lot of Indian cooking, definitely invest in a jar of this amchur to achieve a more authentic taste in your dishes.

Amchur Had I not spoken with her I would have never taken her advice and bought this. Penny, you're absolutely right, the flavor is great and it's going to be one of my biggest secrets in a lot of my cooking......

Amchur I am in the process of converting several hot sauce recipes to powder formulations. One of the sauces is a Caribbean style Scotch Bonnet, Mango and Mustard sauce. The amchur was a very good substitute for the mango, but it was a bit lumpy and had to be pre-sieved before use. Additionally, it was not too sweet, so some granulated honey made up the balance for the sweetness. I will definately be using it again.

SPICE HARRASSMENT STOP EMAILING ME GEEZ!!! 2-3 every week for a review? You're spices are acceptable at best, similar to other companies of this sort out there. None had particularly good quality spices, we produce quote a bit but can't keep up with demand and were hoping to find a reasonable supply, the quality and flavor is 50% of ours at best so we just can't market it.
