Avvale Gojju - Salted Gooseberry/Aamla Chutney

Avvale Gojju
I like to believe I am not fussy about what I eat.I am happy with a simple meal of rice,dal and an upkari.Though amma keeps saying I do not eat most of the vegetables and Ajay feels being a vegetarian I should include more vegetables in my diet,I brush their comments aside.I like Potato,now Potato is a wholesome vegetable isn't it:)

I agree I am not very open to the idea of eating something which is termed 'healthy'.Greens for instance,though I am much open to eating greens now,and then the food churned out to you when you fall sick.Don't get me started on it.But once,when we were in Udupi and I was down with food poisoning,Ajay's aunt made this delicious gojju.I had one spoon and I could feel my taste buds dancing in delight!I am not a big fan of raw garlic but this one bowled me over.

  6. Can we use fresh gooseberry.

    1. I am afraid not.Fresh gooseberry can get bitter when ground into a chutney.
