Amla Murrabba

Lacchedaar Amla Murabba

Amlas, also known as Indian gooseberries, serve as a precious winter delight and feature prominently in various herbal tonics renowned for their purported benefits to the liver, eyes, and stomach. As the richest known source of Vitamin C, amlas are abundantly available during the winter months. Personally, I make it a point to procure a substantial quantity of this fruit annually for the purpose of crafting amla ka murraba, a delightful concoction that holds a special place in my preferences.

Numerous traditional recipes exist for preparing amla murraba, with methods ranging from soaking the amlas in alum (phitkari) overnight to sun-drying them. I find the simplest approach is to boil the amlas in water to eliminate their bitter juices.

The entire process spans approximately 2 to 3 days. Initially, the amlas are gently simmered in a light sugar syrup and left to rest for 2 days, allowing them to gradually absorb the sweetness. On the third day, the syrup is brought to a boil once more, infused with cardamom and saffron for flavor, reaching a thick, honey-like consistency before introducing the amlas. This dense syrup not only aids in preserving the amla murraba but also complements the tart and acidic taste of the amlas.

Over an extended period of preservation, the syrup transforms into a dark brown or nearly black hue, absorbing all the nutritional richness of the amlas. I trust you will relish this amla murabba recipe as much as I have relished the process of creating it for you.
