    Joyous Juices

    AMLA
    It keeps one young and fit. Drinking Amla juice twice a day improves the appearance of the skin, helps to maintain proper body functions, and makes the hair grow stronger.
    Preparation -

    Ingredients:
    1 cup Amla (Indian Gooseberry), cut into pieces
    1cup sugar
    A pinch of salt
    A pinch of cardamom powder (optional) for a glass of Amla juice
    Procedure:
    Wash and dry the Amlas and place them in a bowl.
    Adding 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker, place the bowl in it. Cover the pressure cooker with its lid and light the stove.
    Switch off the stove after one whistle. Remove the bowl from the stove when there is no pressure in the cooker.
    After it has cooled down, press the Amlas with in between the fingers to break them into pieces and remove the seeds.
    Grind sugar into fine powder.
    Grind the Amla pieces.
    To prepare the Amla juice concentrate, mix the Amla paste with sugar powder and salt.
    This concentrated juice can be placed in a freezer safe box and store it in the freezer.
    By adding 2 to 3 spoons of this concentrated juice to a glass of water Amla juice can be prepared whenever required with or without some cardamom powder.
    The concentrated juice can be stored in the freezer for 8 months or more, but it changes colour in course of time.
    Since Amlas are slightly bitter in taste, initially cooking in water will make them soft and ward off the bitter taste.

    Preservation -
    To preserve Amla juice, the quantity of the juice and the capacity of the jar must be equal. For instance, 500 grams of Amla juice should be stored in a 500 grams capacity glass or a plastic container, though preferably in glass container. Add 2 tablespoons of sodium lactate (available at a chemist or any store that sells food chemicals) and mix well. This juice can be preserved in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 months.
    Health Benefits -

    Amla juice is a great drink to recharge your energy for the rest of the day. Being a storehouse of vitamin C and minerals like iron, it can prevent various diseases and improves the health.
