Nellikai/amla rasam



The winters kick-start the season of the Indian gooseberry, better known as amla. Botanically, this extremely sour little fruit is known as Emblica Officinalis. Though you may not find its taste appealing, don't be quick to dismiss it — it's abundant in nutrients and packed with the power of Vitamin C.
 I was wondering for months about how to add amlas in our daily diet .I did not want to take amlas in pickles or murabbaas all the time .I have been buying amla juice from Pathanjali and used to add this to salads and juices but never tried in this form.
However, few days before I tried this rasam specially for my hubby. Despite the fancy dinners my husband gets to enjoy the only thing he truly craves is a deep, steaming bowl of freshly-made dal or rasam.So when i tried this rasam he really liked the hot and sour combo with a kick of Hing/ asafoetida which is the key ingredient generally used in our konkani dal or saru
