Grated Gooseberry Pickle/Instant Grated Amla Pickle

Summer means pickling, sun dried fryums and obviously mangoes. After posting a simple, very delicious sweet and tangy chaat with mangoes, today am posting an another interesting pickle with gooseberries. This wonderful gooseberries are excellent source of Vitamin C and the precious oil which is extracted from its seeds and pulp are used as a treatmet for hair and scalp problems is highly prized.Amlas aka Gooseberries are cooling agent and its adviced to take them often in your diet while its peak summer. These Indian gooseberries offers 5 different tastes, yes they are sour, bitter,pungent ,astringent often ends in sweet taste which is enhanced if you drink water after having amlas.


Whenever i get a chance to get gooseberries from Indian stores here, i wont hesitate a second to pick them,but this time my mom came back with a bag of super fresh gooseberries from India. Immediately i prepared this grated and very quick version of this pickle, served with curd rice this grated version of pickle tastes absolutely marvellous and my instant pickle gets almost vanished within a week. This pickle stays very much prefect for a month in room temperature,but i bet this grated version of gooseberry pickle is very much addictive,that they wont stay for a long.Am running my second week of blogging marathon with 'Summer Special' as theme and this pickle goes for this week's blogging marathon.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#41.


1cup Grated gooseberries/Grated Amla
1tsp Chilly powder
1tbsp Kashmiri red chilly powder

  22. I've actually never had gooseberries - I bought a frozen bag from the Indian market and am yet to use them. My mom told me in the Caribbean they make jam with them and that's pretty much the only use - but I am tempted to try this
