The world now is working on building immunity. Some people are following the sourest of the sourest formulae and some are adapting spicy formulae. Amidst this, it’s the children who are getting affected. They have to go through the same sour stuff, so what is it that we are doing to take care of our immunity and not spoil our taste buds.
It’s the “Homemade Amla Sharbat” also known as “Goose Berry Syrup”. The thought of having Goose berries must be really weird but what if it tastes yummy and is toddler approved.

Grate the Amla, Ginger and keep it aside, take out juice of the lemons, and make syrup by mixing sugar and water together, make sure it doesn’t become very thick, to check if the syrup is ready take one drop in between your fingers and check how sticky it is, you will see a single string being formed don’t let it boil to two strings.
Now strain the sugar syrup into another bowl, strain all the other ingredients into that bowl too and let it cool, empty it into a glass bottle once cooled and store it in the fridge.
Serve 2 tbsp of syrup with 150 ML of water, alter depending on the sweetness.
