30 Delicious Amla Recipes


Here’s a roundup of 30 delicious amla recipes from some great foodies across the web. Amla, or the Indian gooseberry, has a number of culinary uses. 

Amlas are a classic Indian wonderberry, but is little known outside of Southeast Asia. It is exceptionally tart, astringent, and refreshing. Like lemon, 1 tsp of the juice per cup of water is ideal, as the fruit is too potent otherwise. The most common amla recipes include juice, pickle, and as a flavor enhancer in curries and rice-based dishes.
