  3. Steam cook the Gooseberries for 8-10 minutes or until soft.
  4. Now remove and let it come down to room temperature.
  5. Now taking a fork pierce the Gooseberries all over.

  8. Then immediately drop the Gooseberries in the syrup and let them cook in the boiling syrup for 5 minutes on low.
  9. Add Cardamom powder,cover and let Gooseberries boil for another 5 minutes on low
  10. Put off the stove and let the Gooseberries be as it is in syrup for another 24-48 hours before you enjoy them.
  11. Keep stored with or without syrup in an air tight container in the fridge.

Tips :-

  • Piercing the gooseberry helps in better absorption of sugar syrup.
  • After adding Gooseberries in Sugar syrup you will find the quantity of syrup increased because of the release of juice from Gooseberries / Amla.This is the reason we make a thick consistency Sugar syrup because eventually by the release of juice from Amla the syrup gets thin.
  • Life of Amla murabba will be much more with the syrup.
