Amla( Gooseberry) Pickle

Amla has a lots of health benefits. Amla is a seasonal fruit similar to mango and others and generally available in winter season. The fresh Amla is easily available in India however couldn’t find the same in US. I used the frozen Amla available in Indian grocery stores for this pickle however if you can get fresh it would be more delicious. This pickle is not as cumbersome as other like mango or chilies. Amla pickle can be stored for 3-4 months in refrigerator.
