Nellikka chammanthi – Gooseberry Chutney – Nellikkai Thogayal

Nellikai / amla is rich in vitamin C. So it is always good to have them. This is a chutney made with amla/nellikkai as the main ingredient. Similarly, we can also prepare chutney using raw mango. We can have it with rice, porridge or kanji and dosa. You can also use dried red chillies instead of green chillies. I had it today with kanji.

I love nellikai pickle. I have posted a recipe of it.
