Harad Powder

Harad powder is an Ayurvedic spice made from grinding dried harad fruit (also known as Chebulic myrobalan), which has a shape similar to a raisin. It is dark brown in color with astringent, tangy and somewhat sweet flavor profile. The powder is rich in vitamin C and used extensively in the Indian system of medicine as it believed to have many health benefits. Harad powder adds a unique sweet-and-sour flavor to chutneys, curries and vegetable dishes.
