With so many qualities, Amla is used in the ancient herbal immunity enhancer, chyawanprash.

Culinary uses of amla are plentliful. Its most commonly used in pickles. Its also cooked into many curries and stews to impart a tangy flavour to the dish. Tender varieties are used to prepare dal and amle ka murabbah, a sweet dish made by soaking the berries in sugar syrup until they are candied. It is traditionally consumed after meals.
