Amla Murabba Recipe

Amla also known as Indian Gooseberry, is a medium size deciduous plant that is indigenous to India. The small, gooseberry-like fruits have a very sour taste and are a part of the Indian diet because of their ability to nourish health. These small-but-mighty fruits are hand-collected in India either by climbing the tree or shaking the branches to catch the bounty.

Amla is one of the three fruits that are contained in Triphala. Amla is commonly known to contain vitamin C. Some sources even suggest that this fruit has one of the highest known concentrations of vitamin C in the plant kingdom—twenty times that of an orange.1 More importantly, the vitamin C naturally found within the amla fruit is stabilized by the presence of tannins, which help amla to maintain its vitamin content even through processing.
