That is a stone cold classic. Haven’t made it in a while but will now.

i got the anardana at the chinese store i visited for the first time today, had a very random assortment of indian ingredients. plus more amchur powder.

Threw out a whole, unopened packet of amchur powder last night bc full of MOTHS. THE WASTE.

i have looked for amchur powder at three different Indian grocery stores and haven't found shit, so I bought the pomegranate powder and am about to make another large batch of chana masala because i have a 4 lb bag of dried garbanzos that aren't going to cook themselves

That seems weird that three places would not have had it. In demand!

I don't really know what sort of packaging I am looking for and I haven't asked for help either -- nor did I google to see what packages look like.

wait i just googled -- it's the same as asofoetida powder?!!?!?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:29 (three months ago) link

no not the same thing, right?!
i am confused
even after googling i don't think i have seen amchur powder in the stores i have shopped in and they are for sure the sort of places that would have such a thing.

it is NOT lol

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:45 (three months ago) link

it has a very unassuming appearance and should come in a bag. every indian store should have it. i can mail some to you?!?

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:46 (three months ago) link

i'm going to make chana masala tonight too. maybe a naan.

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:48 (three months ago) link

i'm probably just looking in the wrong place -- i should have googled to see what it looks like after i failed to find it the first time but here i am!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:56 (three months ago) link

wrong place in the store i mean

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Sunday, 22 March 2020 20:56 (three months ago) link

when i bought it in an indian store in london it was actually just labeled mango powder instead. You should ask at the counter, they might have it in a weird bulk bag.

i found amchur powder last weekend hanging out near asafoetida and other spice type things. i had never tasted it before—pretty cool stuff!

after hearing about the moth incident i'd advise against buying bulk. could mess up your whole pantry. = unasked-for $.02

i think bulk means by the pound in this context

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 23:04 (three months ago) link

i was just thinking it not being packed in a commercial container. I've never had pantry moths. Is this a common thing?

Yerac, Sunday, 22 March 2020 23:30 (three months ago) link

i had them once about 10 years ago because they got into a bag of pumpkin seeds. then i realized they were elsewhere. a lot of vacuuming up moths and throwing out food.

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 23:35 (three months ago) link

reporting back about the anardana: tasty but i should look for the powdered form. these are the actual seeds and they were not grindable with mortar and pestle.

forensic plumber (harbl), Sunday, 22 March 2020 23:37 (three months ago) link

Huh, the stuff I found was already powdered/pulverized.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Sunday, 22 March 2020 23:38 (three months ago) link

yeah, i forgot to check when i was at the indian store and saw this at the chinese store (indian brand) and grabbed it not thinking too hard about it. i'm sure the indian store has the powdered form.
