Amchoor – In India, the dried fruit of the evergreen Mangifera indica (which the rest of the world knows as the mango tree) is used give a tart tang to many dishes including stews, fillings, and tandoori meats. Only unripe mangoes are used for this purpose, and the dried fruit is available both in sliced and powdered form. It is available in Indian specialty shops where it may be labelled “mango powder,” a direct translation of the Hindi name “am-choor.” A single teaspoon of amchoor provides the equivalent acidity of three tablespoons of lemon juice.
