amba -

Amba (Arabic: عمبة, Hebrew: עמבה) is an acidic mango spice popular in Middle Eastern cuisine (mainly Iraqi, Indian and Israeli cuisine). Its name comes from Sanskrit for mango.

The spice is usually made from mango, vinegar, salt, mustard, turmeric, chili and fenugreek, similar to mango chutney.

The name "amba" comes from the Sanskrit word "amra", and the mango comes from India.
