Amchur recipe -/sun dried raw mango slices - how to make amchur at home

Amchur recipe - Amchur is dried raw mango slices. Every year during mango season, I make amchur and store them to use throughout the year. It is used for bringing tanginess and taste in the dish like dal, amtis, chutnies, fish curries and some other sabzis.
