Instant Nellikayi or gooseberry or Amla pickle recipe with step by step pictures. This is an instant, healthy and easy pickle from gooseberry. Actually I am preparing a post on "collection of recipes from nellikai or gooseberry". Since that work is consuming more time, I thought let me atleast post this tasty and instant pickle recipe, before the gooseberry season gets over. This pickle can stay good for 2 months if stored in the refrigerator. If you are not refrigerating it, then try to finish it before 15 days.

Indian Gooseberry has numerous health benefits. It provides remedies for many diseases. Gooseberry is very rich in Vitamin C, and contains many minerals and vitamins like Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Carotene and Vitamin B Complex. Gooseberry is also a powerful antioxidant agent. Soon we will be posting a lot of details about Gooseberry in the upcoming post.
