Amchur Powder  sometimes spelled 'Amchoor' or 'Aamchur ' is a spice made from dried  unripe green mangoes. It is used throughout Asia  but is usually associated with Indian cuisine  especially the cuisine of Northern India  in which it is a prominent flavoring agent.
The mango tree (Mangifera indica) is native to Southeast Asia  especially India  where it has grown for more than 4 000 years. It holds a special place in Hindu mythology and ritual  and nearly every part of the tree is used for some purpose or another  form the leaves and bark to its resin  flowers  fruit and seed. With the mango's long history in India  it is likely that Amchur Powder's history is nearly as long.
Amchur Powder is used to flavor foods in a similar way to tamarind  imparting an acidic component that also has a fruity sweetness. Traditionally  it is found in curries  chutneys  pickles  soups  legume dishes and chaat masalas. However  its uses do not end with Indian cuisine. It makes an excellent seasoning for roast pork  chicken or fish  a lively flavoring agent for salad dressings and a helpful balancing flavor for sweet sauces or jams.
It is especially useful in recipes where tartness is desired  but not liquid  eliminating the use of lemon or lime juice. It is also added to marinades for poultry and meat  where it acts as an enzymatic tenderizer.
Amchur Powder's health benefits are  not surprisingly  similar to those of fresh mango  providing a concentrated dose of vitamin C (it is very effective in treating vitamin C deficiency  also known as scurvy) and a decent source of vitamins A and E. It is also rich in iron  phytochemicals such as beta-carotene and antioxidants.
