Today’s recipe is ‘Amla Murabba’. It is winter and vegetable markets are full of amla these days. They are one of my favourite fruit since my childhood. During my school days, my mother used to soak amla in salt water for two-three days, that was my favourite. If you love amla, like me, do try this sweet version of amla. You can add amla in your kid’s diet through this recipe. Amla murabba really goes well with hot parathas/dal rice.
Ingredients which you need for amla murabba – Amla, sugar and few spices. You need to boil amla first for some time until amlas are soft enough to mash. For this recipe, normally you need to add an equal amount of sugar, for example, if you take 1/2 kg amla then you will need half kg sugar. If you feel, you want less sweet murabba then you can reduce the amount of sugar.
