Amla Chutney

Amla (Gooseberry) is a rich source of iron and vitamin C. For its medicinal value it is used in Ayurveda for ages.  This chutney is therefore a healthy chutney. The chutney is has a light bitter taste but the overall taste is just yumm. I love to eat these gooseberries with just salt and chilly powder. How about you?


Ingredients:

Amla | Gooseberry- 30
Water- 1 cup
Thoor Dhall- 1 tbsp
Mustard- 1 tbsp
Urad Dhall- 1 tbsp
Chilly Powder- 4 tbsp
Salt- as per taste
Oil- 5 tbsp
Jaggery- 100 g

Method:

Amla Chutney

Amla Chutney

Wash gooseberry well and pat dry.
Pressure cook gooseberry for just 1 whistle.
Now after the pressure comes down just remove the seeds from the gooseberry and set aside.
Once gooseberry cools down just run it through a mixer grinder to make a smooth paste.
Heat a kadai with oil (use a deep one otherwise the chutney will splutter while boiling).
Fry urad dhall, toor dhall, mustard well.
Add gooseberry paste and mix well.
Add chilly powder , salt and let it cook for 2 minutes till red chilly powder blends in well.
Add Jaggery and mix well. Now simmer the flame as chutney will become thickening very fast.
Remove from fire and serve hot with Ragi Dosa or Oats Dosa.
