What Can I Do With Amchur (Amchoor) Powder?

Good Questions

Q: For reasons I'm not entirely sure of, my husband recently purchased a small case of amchur powder. Now we're the proud owners of ten 3.5 ounce containers of amchur and I have no clue what do with it!

Any suggestions on what to make with all that amchur powder??

Editor: Amchur (also spelled amchoor) powder is a very sour and tangy spice made from green mangos that have been dried and powdered. It is used to add sourness to recipes, much like one would use vinegar or lemon juice.

We haven't used amchur very much at all, but here is one recipe you might want to try:

Readers, any good recipe recommendations for Virginia and her major stash of amchur?
