Usirikaya pachadi/Amla Pickle

For the first time, i have attemped to prepare pickles and it was not bad;)

I tried making amla pickle and below is the process :

Amla – 1 cup

Salt -1/2 cup (as per taste)

Chilli powder – 1 cup

Tamarind — 1/2 cup

Methi – 2 spoons

garlic cloves – 10-12

First wash amla with water and dry for sometime. Then put 3-4 deep cuts on each amla with a knife. Now fry amla in a kadai with 3 spoons of oil until they turn light golden colour.

Now soak tamarind in warm water for 30mins and make pulp out of it.

Dry roast  methi in pan for 1-2 minutes

Now grind salt,chilli powder, tamarind pulp, methi, garlic cloves  together into fine paste.

Take the paste in a bowl and add fried amla to it. Mix well .

Now add tadka to it after one day and pickle is ready
