Awala chutney recipe - Nellikayi chutney recipe - Gooseberry chutney

Awala or nellikayi chutney recipe - Today I am going to share a very healthy awala chutney recipe, which I make frequently during gooseberry season. This chutney is  not very tasty, but very healthy and  nutritious. I like it to have as a side dish with steamed rice and curry, when other tempting side dishes are also there. So small quantity of this chutney can be consumed along with other dishes.
