Gooseberry/nellikai/awla pickle recipe

         I am not a big fan of pickles.But I do love to make instant ones with raw mangoes or gooseberries/amla or even some vegetables.I had once tasted with carrots at my friend's place at Aurangabad. I had noted down the recipe and promptly kept with my other recipe books. I had got some gooseberries recently and was looking for a recipe when I remembered this carrot pickle recipe. I found it hidden in my recipe book. I followed the same for the gooseberries. It was quite good and went very well with chapatis , khichdi ,curd rice etc. The good thing is you can add very little oil, but of course , you cant store it more than a week. I will be trying with carrots soon.
      I also found a similar recipe at Jeyashri's space too.

Hi Sowmya, We have an amla tree in our house. During fruiting season it is full of amlas. I was always on a lookout for the recipe of amla pickle. Your recipe looks great. Will try out this time. Thanks!

This is quite different from the amla pickle I am used to. The addition of ginger to the pickle must have kicked the taste up a notch.
