Pedda Usirikaya Pachadi | Pickled Amla | Nellikkai Thuvaiyal

Pickles are the durable than chutneys. The pickle I'm sharing with you today is one of those ones, that can be stored & used refrigerated for months. You can enjoy it the same way or add a little fresh tempering /seasoning before serving for a fresh feel. 
There are many ways of making amla pickle, but this one is the healthier way of making it. 

1 Cup chopped amla
1 Tbs. mustard seeds 
1 Tbs. jeera
1 Tsp. methi seeds 
3 Red chilis 
3 Green chili's ( Adjust acc. to taste) 
Less than 1/2 tsp. of turmeric
1 Tsp. asafoetida / hing
2 Tbs. Oil
1/4 Cup cilantro leaves 

- Heat a pan with oil. Add mustard, methi & jeera to it. 
- Later add the red chilis to pan. Once the mustard starts jumping add hing & turmeric to pan & switch off heat. 

- Allow the seasoning to cool before you grind. 
- Coarse grind the seasoning & to the blender add green chili's, cilantro & salt. Adjust the taste & the pickle is ready to serve.

Serve with rice & a little ghee.

  13. It is important to give your Roberto Cavalli sunglasses good care at all times.
    However, I've found that the situation does dictate what
    silverware we use, the formality of the dinnerware does
    not always reflect how "nice" the meal actually
    is. Caution: If you're buying mid-century dinnerware with the
    intention of serving food on it, be aware that here in the US we did
    not begin regulating lead levels in pottery until the 1970's.
