Our Alphonso Mango Amchur is grown and produced by the Ketkar family on their ancestral land in the hills of Ratnagiri.

The Alphonso mango is among the most highly prized varieties, and Ratnagiri is perhaps the most famous mango-growing region in India (if not the world!). To make the amchur, green mangos are grated with a little salt, dried in the sun and then ground into a powder.

Alphonso mangoes make this amchur a flavor powerhouse - refreshingly bright and slightly salty, it's reminiscent of lemon zest but with a tropical edge. It elegantly complements flavors of savory and sweet dishes alike, elevating them to another level. In fact, we've had a hard time finding something that doesn't benefit from a dusting.

It's an essential ingredient in chaats and other Indian snacks, but it's also a perfect tart & savory topping for pretty much everything you'll ever cook.

This spice contains less than 0.1% salt by weight.

COOKING

SOURCING 

We visited the Ketkar family's mango farm in India in March of 2020. The farm is now in the hands of the 4th generation of farmers, who purchased back their family's farmland after they lost it due to hard times. The farm is idyllic  here's a video that we took during our visit.

The Ketkar family specializes in growing the most delicious Alphonso mangoes. The famous mango varietal is native to India and is widely considered the "champagne of mangoes" for its intense sweetness, tender texture and intoxicating aroma.

While they mainly sell fresh mangoes across India, a portion of the mangoes fall off the trees or get picked before they're ripe. Instead of throwing these mangoes away, they dry them into the most magical and potent amchur we've ever tried.

Mango Amchur

Hello all, I have to be honest, I haven’t been doing any Indian cooking lately but I will now that fall is around the corner. I will put the mango anchor to good use, promise. Thanks again for sourcing such excellent spice.

Something New For Me

This Mango Armchur is interesting stuff. It adds a wonderful dimension of flavor to vegetable dishes, combining very well with spices and herbs like ginger, turmeric, garlic, onion, cilantro, basil and such to round out flavor in ways that are hard to define compared to other strong flavors.
