Notes

Mango Selection: Choose ripe, aromatic raw mangoes for the best flavor. The quality of the mangoes significantly impacts the taste of the final powder.
Drying Process: Ensure thorough drying under the sun for about a week. The mango pieces should become brittle and completely dehydrated before grinding. Proper drying prevents mold and preserves the powder's shelf life.
Turmeric Option: Using a pinch of turmeric while drying the mango pieces acts as a natural preservative. It helps maintain the powder's color and freshness.
Grinding Technique: Grinding the dried mango pieces to a fine powder is key. If aiming for a smoother texture, grind the powder a couple of times. This step determines the powder's consistency.
Storage: Store the homemade Amchur Powder in an airtight container placed in a cool, dark spot. This prevents moisture absorption, clumping, and maintains the powder's potency and flavor.
Usage Tips: Start by adding small amounts of Amchur Powder to your dishes and adjust according to taste. It's a concentrated seasoning, so a little goes a long way.
Experimentation: Amchur Powder isn't limited to traditional recipes; feel free to experiment with various cuisines. It can add a unique tanginess to salads, marinades, and even beverages.
By following these recipe notes, you can create a high-quality homemade Amchur Powder that adds a delightful tangy punch to your culinary creations.
