NEER NELLIKAI



This pickle is made during gooseberry season. This is oil free and spice free. Gooseberry pickle has less shelf life. So if we have gooseberries in surplus, we can make this neer nellikkai, and use for the spicy pickles as and when required.

THIS IS JUST THE BASIC BRINING FOR PRESERVING THE SURPLUS GOOSEBERRIES. THIS CAN BE USED IN BATCHES WHILE MAKING SPICY GOOSEBERRY PICKLES. VARIOUS GOOSEBERRY (AMLA) PICKLES ARE COMING IN THE FOLLOWING POSTS.

INGREDIENTS:

Gooseberry / Amla (big variety) - 15
Salt - 1 tsp.
Water - 2" above after the gooseberries are immersed.
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp.

METHOD:

Heat water in a vessel, add salt and turmeric powder. When the water boils rapidly, add the gooseberries and allow it to boil for a minute. When cool, transfer to a Jaadi (ceramic container), cover with the lid and refrigerate.

NOTE: For a perfect neer nellikai, if you press the gooseberry with your thumb and index finger, it separates into segments.
