Amla Pickle / Indian Gooseberry Pickle Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 kg Amla / Indian Gooseberry (14-15 large or 17-20 small )
  • 1/4 Cup Red Chili Powder
  • 1/4 cup Salt
  • 1/4 cup Mustard seed dal
  • 1/4 cup grated Jaggery
  • 2 tbsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp roasted fenugreek seeds / Methi dana powder
  • 1 tsp Hing / Asafoetida
  • 1 1/2 Cup Oil

Steps

  1. Wash the Amla , pat dry and prick all over with fork. Keep them in a colander. Heat up water in a big vessel. Keep the colander of Amla over it and cover it. Let the Amla cook on steam for about 20 minutes.
  2. Dry roast the fenu greek seeds on a heated skillet until fragrant. Cool and grind them to powder. Also let the amla cool down. Now remove seed and make small wedges of the cooked amla.
  3. In a big vessel first spread the Amla wedges. Now sprinkle the Turmeric powder all over it followed by the Fenugreek powder, Hing , Mustard Seed dal ,Salt and Red Chili powder.
  4. Mix it nicely with a spatula. Now add in the grated Jaggery and mix again. Heat up the Oil on a low to medium flame . Do not boil it. Put off the flame and let the oil cool down a bit . Now add this Oil to the pickle masala and mix well.
  5. Keep the pickle covered overnight. Next day oil will float up . Stir it again and fill in clean and dry glass jars.This pickle stays good at room temperature for about 2-3 months. But color may darken slightly so better to refrigerate.
  6. This pickle can be eaten immediately and does not require to be kept in sunlight. Serve it with chapati , rice, khichadi or any paratha of your choice.
My Tip: The oil layer should always cover the pickle in the jar to ensure the pickle lasts for longer time without spoilage.

    Hi Neetu Mulchandani In Maharashtra , Mustard seed dal is easily available in local grocery shops. If you do not get it , you can simply crush the mustard seeds in a grinder and use it for the pickle.

    @Poonam Garg Do you mean how to preserve the pickle ? You can keep the pickle jar in refrigerator. This will prevent the pickle from blackening.

    @Sonu After steaming the amlas should not be over cooked or mushy. They should retain a proper wedge shape after cutting. Parboiled types
