This medicine can be made at home as fresh amla is the most important ingredient used in it, and all the other ingredients can be easily obtained from any Ayurvedic goods or grocery store. Let’s learn how to easily make market-like-tasty Chyawanprash at home:
Amla – 250 grams
Jaggery – ½ cup

Dates – 6-7 (seedless)
Ingredients for making the spice mix (grind to a fine powder)
Green cardamom -3-4
Black pepper – ½ tbsp
Cinnamon – ½ inch piece
Fennel – ¾ tablespoon
Saffron – 5 – 6 strands
Boil 250 g of amla for 2 whistles in the cooker, let the pressure drop on its own. In the meantime, soak the seedless dates in hot water for 15 minutes.
Separate the seeds of the boiled amlas once they cool down. Grind them with the soaked dates in a mixer grinder. If you want, you can use some of the water in which the dates were soaked to grind. Keep this paste aside now.
Grind the fennel seeds, black pepper and green cardamom in another clean and dry grinder. Add the cinnamon stick and saffron to it and make a fine dry powder.
Now add ghee to a non stick pan, and when it is hot, add puree of amla and dates and cook it for eight to ten minutes. Now add ½ cup jaggery and ½ cup honey and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
