Although I speak a lot about my hubby, daughters and many other people close to me, this time I’ll speak about my grandmother…. She is definitely a great cook! If l have tasted varieties in my food menu as a child and teenager, it is because of her.
This is my grandmother’s recipe.
This recipe I learnt from my grandmother She loves cooking and then sending it to everyone for tasting.We live close to each other and in every few days I receive her dishes.This time I tried one of her recipes and sent it to her.She approved my dish and I was glad of that.
Amla/Awla or Indian gooseberry is considered to be full of Vitamin C and a must have to increase our immunity. In winters amla is available in plenty.
After going through few recipes containing sugar, this one was like a savior.. Quick to make, super healthy and an amazing shelf life..
So if you want to “save” your gooseberries too or just need a daily dose of Vitamin C in a spicy-sour style, do try this Launji.. Happy and Healthy Cooking!!
