Amla Ka Achar || Gooseberry pickle || Quick pickle

Today I am Sharing a very Tasty, Tangy and Healthy Gooseberry Pickle or amla ka achar, a very simple quick pickle.

My garden is full of Indian gooseberries these days. I have learned that Indian gooseberry has tremendous health benefits. 

 The – amla – has been used in traditional Indian medicine, called Ayurveda, for millennia. Clinical studies suggest that it helps preventing Alzheimer’s disease. 

Another study showed that amla also helps block the growth of breast cancer cells and metastasis potential in vitro. They have anti-cancer properties along with cough-, fever-, pain-, stress-, and diarrhea-suppressing effects. Gooseberries contain a healthy dose of scurvy-preventing vitamin C-69 percent of the daily value, and nearly 20 times the C in oranges.

Gooseberries are very sour to taste and are consume them raw. Thats why to gain these health benefits of gooseberries, I decided to make pickle and chutney out of it.  And get this: gooseberries lose none of the vitamin C nutrition in the cooking process. So let’s cook this gooseberry pickle! A healthy treat for your family!!
