Amla dry chutney powder – gunpowder or karam podi recipe with amla, chana dal, and Indian spices. This will be good with hot rice and ghee or as a side for Idly, dosa or upma.
As amla is in season now, I’m trying to use most of it. Other than this amla dry chutney powder, we also make amla pickle which will last for a year.
Amla also called as Indian Gooseberry, is rich in vitamin C and have great antioxidant properties. Amla helps to strengthen the liver and is good for heart, hair, and skin. It is considered as most superior fruit in India and used extensively in Ayurveda. This is one of the main ingredients in Chawanprash. And it is known that vitamin C content in this fruit is not lost even after cooking.
We make a lot of gunpowders or dry chutney powders at home, which will be good for at least a month. We make gunpowder using groundnuts, sesame seeds, flax seeds, curry leaves, moringa leaves and with different kinds of lentils. These are packed with protein and essential fatty acids which is best served with hot rice and ghee or as a side with any tiffin like dosa, idli, upma, roti, bhakri or even with toasted bread. I sometimes sprinkle these on to fresh veggies to make an instant salad. I will post all gunpowder recipes soon on this blog.
