It is winter time and Indian wet markets are flooded with fresh and juicy Gooseberries. So i make sure to include this super nutritious fruit in our daily diet. Apart from adding 2 amla daily in my Miracle Juice , i often make this simple Amla chutney . 
This Amla Chutney is very easy to make and goes well with any Sandwich , Paratha , Matri and Cutlet and Chaat dishes. Can be served with Idli , Dosa or vada. If made using sendha namak, this chutney can be used during vrat or fast. I serve this chutney with Raw Banana Cutlets during fasts. Adding roasted peanuts not only adds to the nutrition of this chutney but also imparts nice nutty flavor to the tangy chutney !
  • 2-3 Amla
  • 1/2 cup fresh Coriander leaves
  • 1 green Chili
  • 2 tbsp Curd
  • 1 tbsp roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar (Optional)

  1. Wash the Amla, and deseed them .

  3.  Serve this tangy nutty chutney as a side dish with any of your favourite flat bread or chaat and  enjoy !!
