Amla Jam Recipe
Amla is a good source of vitamin ‘C’, iron, calcium, and phosphorus. It is very beneficial for health. It improves digestion power and boosts the immune system. According to Ayurveda, it balances kapha, vaat and pitt. By eating amla, we can avoid many diseases. Amla chutney is very easy to prepare. It is made by mixing sugar in boiled amla. To enhance its taste and colour, cinnamon sticks and saffron are added to it.
If you like a slightly salty taste, then add black or white salt to it.It can be eaten in any season.
We can store amla chutney for one year in the refrigerator.It can be served with bread, chapati, or paratha.
I like to eat a spoon of amla chutney after lunch and dinner.
