About Amla Chutney

This Amla Chutney (Indian Gooseberry Chutney) is a spicy and tangy Indian accompaniment made using fresh gooseberries, cilantro, and spices. In winter, you will always find a bottle of this chutney in my refrigerator.

At the onset of winter, amla starts to show up at the vegetable vendors, and I always bring back a few. This little fruit is a powerhouse of nutrients, and I am always looking forward to including it in my family’s diet.

This chutney is the easiest way to feed amla to Mohit and Bhavye. It is also very versatile. I serve it with my Indian-style Dal, Sabji, Phulka, and raita meals, slather it on sandwiches or rolls, or serve it with Indian snacks and appetizers. I also ditch my green chutney for this one during winter to drizzle over the chaat.

Ingredients

Amla (Gooseberry) – This is the star ingredient of this recipe. Choose the amla that are free of black patches.

Cilantro (Fresh Coriander Leaves) makes the base of the chutney.

Green Chilies – I use Indian green chilies, but you can use any available variety. Adjust the amount according to your taste.

Others – You will also need asafetida (hing), cumin seeds, fresh ginger, garlic, sugar, salt, and freshly squeezed lime juice.

Skip using asafetida in the recipe to make a gluten-free version.

You can add some fresh mint to this amla chutney recipe.
