Amla (Gooseberry) Pickle | Amla Ka Achaar | Nellikai Urugai

Amla / Gooseberry Pickle - This is a quick and easy Andhra style spicy amla pickle that can be made in just under 15-20 minutes.  This is usually made in winters when amla are available in plenty.  There are so many variations to the way this pickle is made.  I am sharing the easiest one. This Amla Pickle tastes way way better than the store-bought ones which have so many preservatives.  I normally make small batches so that the pickle tastes and smells fresh.

The shelf life of this amla pickle is about a month if stored in the refrigerator.  Amla Achar tastes very good with rice, dal, parathas, dosa, upma etc.
