Amla Thokku Recipe or the Indian Gooseberry Pickle is a delicious pickle made with the loaded with health benefits of Amla. The Amla Thokku Recipe or the Indian Gooseberry Pickle is super easy to prepare, spicy, and uses raw amla which give it an unique flavor due to it’s sourness.
This pickle is more like an instant achar recipe, as you don’t have to marinate the amla in salt for days or dry it like other pickle recipes. This Amla Thokku Recipe or the Indian Gooseberry Pickle is an adapted version from my Ammi’s mango thokku recipe which she used to make with so much ease. I have applied the same spices which she used to make with the raw mango but I have used the grated Amla instead. As the good raw mangoes are still not in the market, I will share the mango thokku recipe later, in sha ALLAH.
Amla Thokku Recipe or the Indian Gooseberry Pickle will stay good for a week outside in an air tight container but if you keep in refrigerator it will stay good for a longer time. You can even mix this with plain rice and it will make an amazing instant Amla rice just like that.
