Procedure :

  • Thinly grate the amlas.
  • Cook the grated amlas by placing in a bowl in a cooker without adding any water upto 2 whistles.
  • In a thick bottomed kadai, mix the sugar and water well and let the sugar dissolve completely on low heat.
  • Keep stirring it continuously so that it doesn't get burnt.
  • Thus stirring continuously, make a thick syrup - " ele paaka".
  • Now add the grated and cooked amla to the syrup and continue to boil it.
  • Keep stirring.
  • In about 10 minutes, the Morabba starts thickening.
  • Now add the elaichi powder and mix well.
  • Check the consistency. It should be light and flow from the ladle.
  • Don't overcook it else it gets hardened.
  • Watch the video I have shared here to know exactly when it can be removed.

  • The Gulamba tastes awesome when hot, when cold or even when it's a few months old!
