Chyawanprash (Spiced Gooseberry Conserve/jam)
Life is like a roller coaster ride with it's ups and downs. After some tough times a few month's ago, this month really cheered us up. One of our deeply heartfelt wishes, which we had been hoping for and working towards for a long time, is coming true this month and we are floating in happiness.
As I said in my last post, December is a month of celebration for us and this little accomplishment adds to our celebrations :-) One must work hard to fulfill a wish and that's what we have been doing this month and, I didn't get much time to update my blog. But, I do have a great recipe to share today.
Chyawanprash is a versatile herbal tonic prepared according to an ancient Ayurvedic formula with multiple health benefits. Used by people around the world today, and especially in India, it is a proven energizer, immunity booster and preventive tonic.
Chyawanprash is a mix of up to 49 ayurvedic herbs (or even more!) with gooseberries (amla) as its main ingredient. Of course, I didn't have all the spices and herbs so just used what I had available in my kitchen. We loved the taste and my hubby has already asked me to make it again and that's always a good sign and definitely makes me happy :-)
