Chywanaprash Recipe

Updated: Mar 4, 2019

Recipe for Chywanaprash, an amla based Ayurvedic jam that is full of heathy and health supporting herbs and other ingredients. Delicious on toast, in oatmeal, as filling in sweet rolls, and even as a glaze on salmon. 


1 cup dehydrated amla

Water to hydrate amla

2 cups grated jaggery or 1½ cups sugar

½ cup ghee (some recipes used less, but I love the taste and medicinal benefit of ghee)

¼ cup honey, or to taste (optional) (I used raw)

Combination of Herbs in This Batch.  I used powdered of the following so the entire herb would be left in the jam without me needing to grind them.

1 tsp. ashwagandha

1 tsp. shatavari
