The Best Ever Vitamin C Loaded Amla Superberry Chutney
This could easily be the easiest recipe to make. Amla chutney.
The preparation is tangy, spicy, and flavorful that can be consumed with parathas, pakoras, samosas, kachoris, etc. anytime you want. The unique taste of Amla, which is bitter and yet sweet, when mixed with ginger, green chili, and coriander leaves, leaves the person smacking. And therefore if you've had enough of the usual, why not try a twist.
Amla chutney is generally eaten during winters (due to amla's availability) but what if you are craving for it during any other season? Here is the solution! Give Goodlyfe Amla powder a permanent stay in your kitchen and give your taste buds a scrumptious taste whenever you want. It's the best amla powder for consumption. The powder is made from the handpicked Amla fruits picked from Organic farms and processed under conditions that retain the nutrients and flavor.
1/4th cup Goodlyfe Amla Superberry Powder
1 cup chopped Coriander leaves
1/2 inch Ginger cube
2-3 medium-sized Green Chillies
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Rock salt
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon roasted Cumin powder
1 teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
1 teaspoon Sugar or Jaggery
1 pinch Asafoetida
Take one-fourth cup of Good Lyfe Amla Superberry Powder and put it in the Food Processor.
Take the coriander leaves; wash them thoroughly with clean water twice or thrice. Then chop it roughly and mix it with the amla powder.
Add the chopped green chilli, ginger, and lemon juice. Put a sufficient amount of water (slightly less than one-fourth cup) so as to get the smooth blend.
Put all the spices in the grinder- rock salt, plain salt, cumin powder, black pepper powder, asafoetida, sugar, or jaggery. Blend well to get the smooth paste.
You can taste the blended paste and add the spice which you feel is less. The spices mentioned above may vary from person to person as per their taste preferences.
The tempting and antioxidant amla chutney is ready to serve with your favourite dish/snack.
You can also store it in an airtight container and refrigerate the same for 4-5 days.
If coriander leaves give an aroma, ginger and green chilies give a spicy touch to the chutney, and sugar or jaggery will nullify the tanginess of amla. This recipe makes half a cup of chutney, able to serve 4-5 persons.
Traditionally, it used to take a lot of time to prepare the chutney as people used to make it on stone. They used to put all the ingredients on a big stone and coarsely grind them with another stone. It used to take effort but it was definitely worth it as its taste was lip-smacking. But in today's time, it barely takes 15 minutes to prepare, owing to modern technology.
