I grew up in a village. And we had a huge Gooseberry tree or "nellikai mara" nearby. So every year my Mother prepares all possible dishes, distribute it to others and store it in all possible forms. Making amla powder or gooseberry powder, storing it and using it through out the year is one way to store and use nellikai. My mother will distribute this powder to me, my sister, my sister in law and many other relatives.
Nellikai or Indian gooseberry is very good for health. It is packed with Vitamin C and it has numerous health benefits.

I have heard that Gooseberry retains it's goodness irrespective of drying it or cooking it. So you can either use this powder in your cooking or for beauty purposes like hair care.
