Why I Love This Recipe

Winters are always special for me, though I don't like the cold and the other infections that are associated with it. There is a reason for me to celebrate

Ingredients You'll Need


Amla ( gooseberry ) 800g Or 35 in number

Water enough to cover the amlas

Dry red chillies 3

Green chillies 4 slit lengthwise

Methi ( fenugreek ) seeds 1 tsp

Hing 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste

Turmeric powder 1 tsp


Wash and soak the amlas in water overnight in a bowl.

2. Transfer the amlas along with water in a glass jar.

3. Add salt, turmeric powder, dry red chillies, green chillies, hing and fenugreek seeds.

4. Mix everything well and check for seasoning.

5. Cover with lid and leave it for at least a week.

6. Mix after every 2 days.

7. After a week, check if the gooseberries have become soft. If they lose their bitterness, they are ready to be eaten.

8. This will stay good for at least 6 months.

9. Sometimes, there will be a black layer formed on the top. In such a case, remove the layer and you can still enjoy the amlas.
