This looks absolutely delicious! Like 5 Star Foodie, I'm unfamiliar with Amchur powder - could you describe it or is there perhaps a substitution? A wonderful recipe!

AMCHUR is a powder made with unripe or green mango fruits which have been sliced and sun dried.
It tastes tangy so you may substitute it with lemon juice or tamarind pulp.

I hope this helped.

sounds terribly yummy; must be great with some chapatis; spinach and potatoes always make a nice pair.
