As Amla has various health benefits , I prepared a recipe often suggested by my grandmother.This is a preserved version of amla/gooseberry pickle. This pickle is mixed with plain steamed rice and consumed as a first course of meal.
Drain the water and grind the amla along with salt into a fine paste. Store this in a jar.
To prepare for few servings, heat oil in a pan. Add all the above listed spices and saute them till they turn light brown.
Switch off the flame and grind it into a powder. Take small amounts of the preserved pickle and add this to the grounded powder. Blend this again into a fine paste.This can be stored for a month or so.
