How to Consume Amla

Amla, or Indian gooseberry, is a sour and pungent fruit native to India. It is about the size and shape of a mini apple and is bright yellow-green when ripe. One amla has about 20 times the vitamin C of an orange. It is heavily used in Aryuvedic medicine as a laxative, anti-inflammatory and antacid. It is available at ethnic food stores in raw and powder form.
