Green mango (am) powder (choor) is acidic and gently fruity. It is used at the end of cooking to give a tart note similar to lemon or tamarin paste, without adding liquid.
Amchoor is one of the spices used mainly in Indian and vegetarian cuisine. It is used in vegetable stews, chutneys and salads, as well as raw seafood and fish dishes. Added to poultry and marinades because it has the property of tenderizing the meat. Incorporate the amchoor to a flan, chocolate mousse or cream for an exotic note.
