How to make Star Gooseberry Relish

  1. Wash the ripe berries.
  2. Add the berries in a pot and add water enough to cover it.
  3. Boil it until it gets soft.
  4. Discard the water and while hot roughly mash it with a spoon.
  5. In a heavy bottomed deep pan,add the mashed berries ,split cardamom along with half cup of sugar and little water and cook in low heat.
  6. Stir it occasionally as it may scorch at the bottom.
  7. When all the sugar gets dissolved,stir it so that the sugar caramelises to give a nice color.
  8. When all the water gets evaporated,add the remaining sugar and little water.
  9. Stir it well until it gels together and no water remains.
  10. Allow it to cool and transfer to sterlised containers for longer shelf life.
  11. Serve with pulaos or roti.

My Tip:

To discard the seeds,the fruit should be cooked longer. Do not add all the sugar at a time.Let it caramelise. Adding more water will take more time for the berries to gel together.So add when needed. It splutters when boiling.So use a deep pot and a long ladle to protect your fingers. It scorches to the bottom quickly.So stir often. As we Indians prefer the flavour of cardamom for sweets,I have added cardamom.You can spice up with cinnamon also
