Amchoor (dried mango powder)
is special South Asian spice.
- Choose large firm raw
green mangoes. The one with more flesh
and lesser fibre are good.
- Peel with a vegetable peeler.
Slice into long thin slices, and put in
strong sum immediately, by spreading on
a clean dry cotton sheet in single layer.
- The slices should be in
bright strong sun for at least 4-5 hours,
to avoid them from discoloring. Spread
in a dry warm area in the night and spread
again as before till the pieces are crisp
- Pound and then run in dry
grinder till a fine powder is got. Sieve
if required to make even powder. Store
in clean sterile airtight jars.
