This is my mother’s recipe.

Amla or Indian Gooseberry is a vegetable which is full of health benefits.


  1. Amla 500 gm
  2. 1/2 tbsp mustard oil
  3. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  4. 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  5. 1/2 tsp fennel powder/ sauf powder

  7. 1 tsp turmeric powder
  8. 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  9. 1/2 tsp Garam masala
  10. 1/2 tsp chili powder
  11. salt to  taste


  1. Put Amla in a strainer and wash them well. Take a utensil, wash it and fill enough water in it so that the Amlas will be submerged easily then put it on fire for boiling. When water begins to boil put the Amlas in boiling water. After the water starts boiling again keep it boiling for 2 minutes then put off fire and cover these Amlas for 5 minutes with a utensil. Make sure that you don’t put the Amlas into the utensils before the water starts boiling. Put the Amlas for cooking only when the water is already boiling.
