Mint and Indian gooseberry (Amla) dip/spread

Amla Mint dip1


This is spread/dip/chutney prepared using amla,mint and coriander leaves. Here the taste of Amla dominates much and you can adjust the quantity as per taste. This can be served as a dip for idly, dosa/crepes and can be used as a spread for sandwich/burgers as it is a healthy alternative to creamy dip/spreads. It can even be used in chaats.

Health Benefits:

Amla is rich in Vitamin C, enhances immunity; reduces inflammation and good for the skin too

  1. Amla and mint combination sounds interesting Chitra.I am not at all finding Amla here


  2. Ooh I like that lovely dip for all the snacks I eat and healthy too .. so can counter measure the unhealthy snacks..
    He he hewhat an idea..


  3. Mouth watering Amla chutney. Wow!


  4. I saw a pack of frozen amla last week. Will get it next time πŸ™‚


  5. That looks fantastic, is Amla available in North America?


  6. Looks so lovely and doable but I can’t find amla these days. Must try once I find them.


  7. I’m trying to imagine these flavors… But I’ve never had gooseberry (unless it was by some other regional name). However, your description makes me certain it is delicious! πŸ˜€ Hugs.


    • Teagan – Amla is the Indian name…However other names for gooseberry are: Aamalaki, neli, emblic, Amla, Aovla, Emblica, Emblica officinalis, Mirobalano, Myrobalan, Mirobalanus embilica, Myrobalan emblic.

      Hope it helps
