Besides being beneficial for our outer appearance, it is known to improve eyesight & metabolic activity, treat menstrual cramps, aid in digestion and even eliminate toxins from the body. (Read more here)
Amla is part of everyone’s diet at my place and this recipe makes it easier, in fact, tastier to have it. I would rather prefer to die instead of consuming raw amla juice or eating raw amla. But this recipe makes amla bearable, trust me! You can have it as a side with chapati or rice. It has a perfect sourness with a hint of sweetness and spiciness.
