sweet amala joiney moda ma pani avi gaya. bau saras lageche. i don't think we get fresh amala here, tara pics joine aiya khush thaiye che.

Vinita said...

Thanks kajal for that extra input of Aamla benefits. Also we make aamla supari too by drying the aamla pieces in the sun but never heard of adding ghee to it. sweet aamla sounds and looks delicious too.. never tried it nor have i eaten it. How did you think of doing aamla recipes ?? Is this the season for Aamlas in India? In US we get only frozen amlas on a regular basis but should try"sabzi mandi" indian grocery store for fresh aamlas if this is the season.

Hi Vinita,
Thanks for your nice reply.
Winter (January) is season for aamlas.
My mom made sweet aamla so I try different type of other recipe.
In April there is no aamla in sabzi mandi.
I take photo of this recipe before two month but pending for post so I post 15-April.

Add a pinch of salt to the Amla pieces before they are steamed and add a pinch to the sugar syrup too. You will be surprised at the enhancement in taste with salt addition. I did this after reading your blog but with my trick of adding salt and felt like sharing with you folks!

Hi Kajal,

would it need acetic acid for sweet amla for the dry supari like conservative method.
