Gooseberry is known as poor man’s apple. It is healthy and we consume making nellikai thayir pachadi, both with fresh and sun dried gooseberry, neer nellikai – my favorite. I have never tasted any other gooseberry pickle. So when I saw this easy recipe in a cookbook I have, I wanted to try it out. So tried it and turned out tasty. Its very simple, you can make it in a jiffy and enjoy with our curd rice. It has only the usual pickle ingredients.
