Green mangoes are dried and powdered to make amchur, a tart powder used in dishes where acidity is required. In particular, it is used for sprinkling over crisply roasted or fried lentil snacks. Amchur is used to add tartness without moisture. Substitute lime or lemon juice or tamarind pulp where the addition of a wet ingredient does not jeopardize the consistency of the dish.
