Amla Urugai | Gooseberry Pickle !!


I love making pickles at home and this is my childhood favourite one.  I prefer to cut the gooseberries into small pieces instead of keeping it as a whole.  Try to use sesame oil for this preparation, as it enhances the flavour of pickle.  Refrigerate the pickle for longer use.  


Ingredients :

  1. Gooseberry - 1 1/2 cups
  2. Oil - 1/3 cup (preferably sesame oil)
  3. Chilly powder - 2 tbsp (to taste)
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Vinegar - 2 tbsp
  7. Mustard Powder - 1/2 tsp (Dry roasted & powdered)
  8. Fenugreek Powder - 1/2 tsp (Dry roasted & powdered)

Method :

1.  Clean the gooseberry and dry them completely.  Cut them into small pieces (with or without seeds) if desired.

2.  Heat oil in the pan, add gooseberries and fry them for few mins or until half cooked.  Switch off the flame.

3.  In the same oil, add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt, mustard powder and fenugreek powder.   Cover the pan and set aside for few hours.

4.  Once the pickle is completely cooled, add vinegar and store it an air tight container. 


Enjoy !!
