Here is a peppy rice dish with the tangy taste of amla, which is a must-try when the berry is in season. It has a refreshing taste, which excites the palate.

Perfectly cooked rice is flavoured with grated amla and perked up with a crunchy seasoning of mustard seeds, dals and peanuts. This tangy Amla Rice, punctuated by crunchy titbits like dal and peanuts, is a great hit with young and old alike.

You can also try other amla recipes like Amla Infused Water or Amla Murabba .

Just found this wonderful recipe while surfing the internet for amla/gooseberry recipes. Msg to Kevin - I too live in UK .. You will find gooseberry/ amla at any asian/Indian ethnic store (if available) in ur town. I doubt if its available in the standard superstores like Sainsbury''s, Tesco or Asda.. Hope this helps. Cheers, Avanti
