Since childhood, I have been hearing a lot about amla's benfits for hair. So I wanted to give alma a try for my hair.
Not only this, it is loaded with vitamin C, which helps you fight infections and get an immunity boost.
Recently, I have met another Punjabi girl online, with whom I feel extremely comfortable. Both of us share many similarities. Her name is Anna, who has introduced me to some traditional recipes of her highly talented mom.
This amla achaar recipe also belongs to Anna's mom. I have made addition of hing to the original recipe. I find this recipe easy to make. Not only this, I love the pickle, which tastes tangy & tasty.
