Amla, the powerhouse of Vitamin C, takes on a lip-smacking avatar in this unique chutney. Its sweet, sour and spicy notes will tickle your taste-buds and leave you wanting more. Good health has never been this addictive!
When you think of a typical Indian ghar-ka-khaana, you picture a thali in your mind, rice, roti, papad, dal, sabzi and the necessary pickles and chutneys as accompaniments. Each element has a role to play and chutneys are those character actors which make the entire scene fun and palatable. But sometimes, character actors steal the show and the accolades. And Ammiji’s Amla Chutney is one such character actor!
Amla or the Indian gooseberry is one of the few fruits that does not lose its potency when subjected to heat. Cooking does not diminish its powers. It is a storehouse of nutrients, widely regarded as medicinal and therapeutic in all of its forms, whether its raw, dried or cooked like in this delicious chutney.
In Ayurveda, amlaki is the nectar – the remedy to all ills, and the rejuvenate. It is one of the richest sources of Vitamin C and a good source for iron and other vitamins and minerals too. It is anti-aging and beneficial for all organ systems in the body, especially the respiratory system.
Now, can something so beneficial be so delicious? When taken raw, amla is sour, almost bitter. But when cooked up, as it is here, it assumes a delectable profile, with perfectly balanced notes of sweet, sour and spicy.
Ammiji’s Amla Chutney is a perennial favorite in her household. It’s omnipresent at her dining table and no meal is complete until she’s made sure that everyone’s had a spoonful or two. This chutney goes well with everything from dal-chawal to parantha’s to a dip for your lavaash.
Getting your daily dose of Vitamin C has never been so deliciously easy!
