Amla Chutney | Gooseberry Chutney

Amla Chutney
recipe of making amla chutney

Amla is also known as gooseberry. It is a rich source of vitamin C and too many nutrients, beneficial for our eye sight, hairs and digestive system. We should try to include it in our diet, one simple way to include it in our daily diet is to use it in a form of chutney.
This quick and easy chutney goes well with any meal course, usually raw amla has a distinguish strong flavor, hence I used to boil it before grinding, but now it is easy to microwave it for 3 minutes before grinding, it doesn’t change its color and taste.
Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:

  5. Healthy amla chutney is ready to serve


If we are boiling amlas , it will reduce its sour flavor and we have to add lemon juice , tamarind or amchur powder to enhance its taste, but in case of microwaving its sour flavor retains and need not to add any sour ingredient. 
This chutney is grinded coarse.
You can adjust its consistency according to you. If you want to know more about amla or gooseberryand its uses please refer to Wikipedia for details.
