I am a big fan of chutneys and pickles. without them my food is not complete. Everyday I try a new one.
This amla dhaniya pudina chutney is another quick and super healthy side that you can prepare in a jiffy. There is not even a recipe to be honest, just blending everything together makes it. And you can keep the proportion of things as per your own taste so even thats not a worry.
Its Super healthy and flavourful chutney- rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and minerals. Cooling and aids in digestion.
These aamlas are from my friends kitchen garden .
2 Aamla (Aamla / Gooseberry)
½ cup pudina (mint)
1 cup coriander (dhaniya/cilantro)
1-2 green chillis (as per taste)
1 tsp rock salt (or as per taste)
A pinch of black pepper
½ tsp cumin powder
- Wash all the herbs and roughly chop them.
Chops the gooseberries carefully into pieces, leaving the seed out. (Tip:- It has a
- plum like shape and seed inside, so chop through the sides).Combine all ingredients together with ½ cup of water and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
Serve fresh .
- This chutney (or any herbs’ chutney) tastes best when eaten fresh. So try not to keep it longer than a day. It wont get bad after that and can be kept in fridge for upto 5 days. But will lose its texture and a bit of flavor.
- You can add 1 garlic pod + 1 small onion + 1 small tomato + ½ tsp garam masala and a pinch of asafoetida (heeng) to it. This combo makes a very flavorful chutney
