Nellikka Juice/Gooseberry Juice


Nellikka/Amla/Gooseberry is one of the fruit with a lot of goodness according to Ayurveda. It is powerhouse of vitamins, excellent cooler ,a great antioxidant and the list goes on and on.
My father has this notion that nellikka is an ottamooli meaning, it can heal all illnessJ
He always gets a big bag of gooseberries when it is on season and our fridge would be filled with Nellikka Kuppi’sJ aka Gooseberries in Brine
Needless to say we had lots and lots of it when we were growing up in all forms..as pickle, curry, chutney and even as juice until I reached that point where  I started to hate it..grrr
And Nellikka was on my hate list for a long time..
During the weekend we went down to Little india to get some Indian veggies and these freshest gooseberries caught my eyes..


It was too cute to resist and I got some..Quick call to Amma to get her recipe of the Nellikka juice ..as that is the easiest thing to make:-)
We loved the refreshing flavor of it ..I think I will chuck off Nellikka from my hate list:-)

  21. My mother forces this down my throat saying its healthy. But she never put all those ginger, salt and stuff which makes the juice sound so awesome! :) Plus, if I can get her to make the juice like yours, I wouldn't mind gulping a glass everyday! :D Looks simply too pleasant & beautiful!
