         Amla/Nellikai Thokku

Amla/Indian gooseberry/Nellikayi is a sour and tangy fruit known for its medicinal qualities. It is rich in Vitamin C , and known to prevent premature hair-fall. Amla Rice is easy to prepare and is very tasty. 

Amla/Nellikai Thokku is a traditional spicy side dish which is very much similar to pickle. Nellikai in Kannada is the Indian Gooseberry which is available in the market during the month of November (Kartika Masa).
