Using Amchur (Amchoor)

Description:

Amchur is made from unripe sun dried mangoes, which come in whole or powdered form. This spice is used in many Indian cuisines. Amchur is similar to lemons in flavor, but a bit milder, it adds a tart, sour taste to dishes.

Substitutions:

You can substitute lemon or lime if you don't have amchur handy. 3 Tbsp lemon/lime juice for 1 tsp amchur.
