Gooseberry(Nellikka) Juice


Gooseberry(Nellikka) Juice

Here¦s a simple juice version; perhaps concocted considering time and convenience factors
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Cuisine Kerala
Servings 3 people


  • 10 Gooseberries Nellikka/Amla
  • ginger A small piece
  • Salt As required
  • Water As required for grinding


  • Deseed the gooseberries. Cut them into small pieces for better grinding.
  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender.
  • Strain the whole thing.
  • Dilute it further according to servings and serve.
  • You can also add a couple of mint leaves for a better flavour.
  • Pls note that this quantity would suffice for approximately 5 v 6 persons. And a huge warning for those who¦d want to amplify their IQs within quick time by gulping down the above pitcher alone especially before diluting, pls don¦t do it as you¦d be earning your one way ticket to the looa. Apparently, nellikka is an excellent laxative and forms one of the main parts of the ayurvedic medicine Triphala. Hope you got the point. ;-p
  • Before wrapping up, a succinct note on an old Malayalam aphorism which goes like this. Moothavar chollum mudhunellikka adhyam kaikkum, pinneedu madhurikkuma. So true in our contemporary lives tooasomething that our rebellious minds do not even bother to acknowledgeathe minds that want to believe that what it¦s doing is right, even if it¦s wrong. Maybe it¦s not voguish to heed to others¦ versions and comments, even if they are priceless ones. But knowledge is what counts and experience along with circumstances are the best teachers in lifeato teach you that always listen to others tooaso that you don¦t repeat the same mistakes they made earlier. Listen and act wisely...which is the key to success in lifea. Good luck!!!
