Everybody knows the nutritional benefits of Nellikka / Amla / Indian gooseberries. I buy some whenever it’s available and the best way to eat it is raw dipped in some salt.... Sometimes I make wine, pickles, chutney and once in a while I even throw it in the blender and make juice.... If you haven’t tried it as chutney do try this tongue tickling chutney.....
