If you ask any Indian what to eat to ensure Vitamin C in the diet, Aamla is surely going to figure in the list. This Indian Gooseberry holds a very important place in the Indian heart (and hair). When it is in season, everyone laps it up making pickles, chutneys or sun dries it to ensure a year long supply of Vitamin C. As kids, we used to buy small tiny sachets of dried and salted aamlas as an after school snack.
But I need to tell you my find of the day before that: Vegan Food Rocks. That cream of Broccoli soup looks so easy and awesome!
This chutney is raw, vegan and oil free. It goes well with rotis and I'm sure some bread or dosa will be nice with it too.
4 aamlas or Indian Gooseberries
2 mild Green chillies
The Aamlas have tough flesh with a pit inside. Remove the pits and blend it with the green chillies and salt.
Enjoy your dose of sour, concentrated vitamin C!
