Amla Chyawanprash

Ingredients to make Amla Chyawanprash

  • 2-3 Cups Amla or indian gooseberry
  • 1 cup jaggery or Gurr
  • 1 cup honey
  • 5 to 6 tbsp .Ghee or clarified butter
  • 6-8 Green cardamom or Elaichi
  • 1 tbsp Whole Black pepper
  • 1 inch stick cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp fennel seeds or Saunf
  • 5-6 strands saffron or Kesar

How to make Amla Chyawanprash

  1. Wash Amlas or Indian Gooseberry and pat them dry with your kitchen towel.
  2. Arrange a pressure pan with a rack at its bottom and add amlas to it. Add water and close the lid. Boil the amlas for 2 whistles or 10 minutes on full pressure. Turn the flame off and let it sit in steam till the pressure is released.
  3. Drain the water and remove the pit. After they boil they become soft and you can easily remove the pit.
  4. Put the pulp in a blender and make a smooth puree. You make use a spoon of water to ease grinding.
  5. In a pan add some ghee or clarified butter. And add amla puree to the ghee. Keep sauteing for good ten minutes or until you see it leaves out the oil.
  6. Add Jaggery or Gur to the amla puree. I decided to put a big chunk as it was soft. But incase your jaggery is hard as a rock, I would recommend you to break it into small pieces or make a powder.
  7. Add Honey. Keep sauteing till you achieve a thick, sticky, messy mass.
  8. Take green cardamom, fennel seeds, whole black pepper, few strands of saffron and cinnamon in a dry grinder and make a powder .
  9. Add ground spiced to the pan and mix well. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes till everything is well combined.
  10. Let it cool down and transfer to an air tight jar. Eat a spoon full daily with a glass of milk and have a healthy, illness free winter.

@udaya banu ... Honey is not poisonous on cooking. Some honey dishes are now in trend like honey chilli chicken. We put honey and sauces and cook. And it's tasty. So no need to worry
