Amla Dip | Neelikkai Thogayal | Gooseberry-coconut chutney

I'm not a big fan of this amla but would never betray if offered one.I hardly buy this and make any recipe.But last month I bought a small quantity of it to try thayir pachadi  with it  and totally forgot  as last month situation at home was not good one after another got sick and I was deeply depressed by it.At one stage I thought to quit blogging and then realised its the only place to interact with friends and get motived by the comments.It was at this time priya posted a thogayal with amla and I thought it would be the best way to use my untouched amla sitting calmly in the refrigerator.
