Amchur also referred to as mango powder, is a fruity spice powder made from dried unripe green mangoes and is used as a citrusy seasoning. It is produced in India and is used to flavor foods and add the nutritional benefits of mangoes when the fresh fruit is out of season.
Amchur always available at home and it a very easy, quick recipe. Earlier I posted Amchur chutney with Gur or Jaggery. This time I used brown sugar instead of Gur or Jaggery. Since Gur or jaggery is only available in winters. So, I am using brown sugar. You can use normal white sugar too.

Brown sugar – 1 cup
Water – 2 cups
Raisins – 3 tbsp
