Amla ( Nellikai / Gooseberry ) Pickle Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 02:39:00
Today, let me post an additional recipe to the pickle section of KitchenMasti which is very nutritious and healthy.  It is a pickle prepared out of amla or gooseberry or nellikayi. It is believed that amla has many medicinal values which helps delaying the aging process, delaying wrinkles and prevents premature greying of hair. Nowadays, it is quite common to see younger generation with grey hair, so, regular intake of amla may be quite helpful. To prepare amla pickle, you have to prepare a pickle powder which I have already published in one of my previous blog posts. Here you will have to mix the amla with the pickle powder and use it whenever necessary.

KitchenMasti Points 

  1. You can increase or decrease the pickle powder as per your requirements.
  2. Initially, pour little quantity of salt water to pickle powder. Stir it well and add additional salt water only if you feel necessary, or else the pickle might turn out to be very watery.
  3. See to it that you do not dampen or wet your hands throughout the pickling process or else the watery content may lead to the development of fungus.
