5 Smart ways to include Amla in the daily diet
Amla also known as Indian gooseberry is no less than a winter superfood, which has been used since ages in several Ayurvedic remedies and ancient medicines for their potent health benefits. However, the tangy and slight pungent taste and texture of this simple berry can make it tough to consume raw. Thus, we have curated five interesting ways of including these simple ingredients in the day to day diet.
Toss up amla with crushed jaggery, lime juice and chaat masala and let it sun dry or air fry to dehydrate. Store this and enjoy after meals to reap the benefits of amla.
Blend fresh amla with your favorite fruits like bananas, berries, or oranges to create a delicious and nutrient-packed smoothie. You can also add yogurt or plant-based milk for a creamy texture. This is a refreshing way to start your day with a burst of vitamin C.
Make a tangy and spicy amla chutney by blending fresh amla with green chilies, mint, and a pinch of salt. Use it as a condiment to accompany meals. This chutney not only adds flavor but also provides a nutritional boost.
To make this quick pickle, cook amla chunks with mustard oil, whole red chilie, kalonji, spices and black pepper, let it ferment in sunlight and consume daily.
Make a warming cup of amla tea by infusing dried amla pieces or amla powder in hot water. Add a dash of honey for sweetness. Amla tea is a soothing beverage that combines the antioxidant properties of amla with the comforting warmth of tea.
