Amla Ki Sabzi (Indian Gooseberry Curry)


Amla or Indian Gooseberry is a unique vegetable which is full of health benefits. In India it is mostly consumed as a pickle or murabba. You can also make a chutney of this. Amla is a taken for granted vegetable. Amla is good for diabetic people.

I love amla a lot. We don’t get amla in southampton so i got some from london on my recent visit. I was planning to post this recipe when priya contacted me and asked if i can do a diabetic friendly recipe for her Diabetic-Friendly Food Week. My mother-in-law is a diabetic so it’s good to spread the awareness about diabetic foods.


Amla Ki Sabzi


10 small amla/indian gooseberry, washed and poke them with fork or knife

1/2 tbsp oil

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tbsp fennel powder/ saunf powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

salt to  taste


Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, allow them to splutter.

Now add amla, coriander powder, turmeric, fennel powder and salt to taste.

Stir it well so that amla is coated well with spices.

Splash some water and cook it covered, stirring occasionally, until the Amla are just tender.

Add very little water if required.

Serve it hot with chapati, rice or paratha.
