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?

Thoor Dhall- 1 tbsp
Mustard- 1 tbsp
Urad Dhall- 1 tbsp

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.
