Our Organic Amchoor Powder is a pale colored, finely ground, culinary product made up entirely of green mangoes. This delicacy is created by harvesting mangoes early in the season, thinly slicing them, drying them until they are crisp, and grinding them down. Because the mangoes are not allowed to ripen before this process, the resulting powder has a unique flavor of both tangy sour and fruity sweet. Due to the powders high acidity, it is also used as a type of marinade and tenderizer for meats, or as way of acidifying a dish without having to add excess liquid.
The powder‰۪s complex flavor profile has long been enjoyed by North Indian cuisines ‰ÛÒparticularly as a form of preservation, and a means to incorporate the rich taste and high nutritional properties of mangoes when they aren‰۪t in season. Today it‰۪s usage has spread too much of southern Asia where the unique culinary properties are used in a variety of dishes, both sweet and savory.
The powder boasts many of the same nutritional benefits and health properties of mangoes, such as a load of iron, vitamin A, E, and C. The powder also is acidic which is believed to help aid in healthy digestion.
