Large Gooseberries (Amla) - 700g
Green chillies - 2 slit
Salt - 1/2 tbsp
Water - as required
Wash and clean the gooseberries and keep them aside. Heat water in a heavy pan and when it comes to a boil, add the salt and green chillies. Stir the water once, to distribute the salt. Add the gooseberries and then let the water come a boil once more. The gooseberries should just be covered in the water. If necessary, add more hot water to cover the gooseberries. Let the entire mixture boil for a minute or so and switch off the flame. Remove the pan from the stove. Cover it tightly and cool it down completely. We usually leave it overnight or throughout the day. Once completely cooled, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate it.
