  • 300 grams Amla
  • 150 ml Nolen Gur
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (or as per taste)
  • 1 tablespoon Roasted Spice Powder (coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds, 1 dried red chili)
  • 2-3 Dried Red Chili
  • 1 teaspoon Panch Phoron
  • 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Mustard Oil

Cooking Instructions:

*Step 1 – Preparing the Amla:*

   – Boil the amla for 10 minutes without using a pressure cooker, adding a pinch of salt to the water.

*Step 2 – Deseeding Amla:*

   – Allow the boiled amla to cool, then deseed the fruit.

*Step 3 – Roasting Whole Spices:*

   – In a pan, dry roast 1/2 teaspoon each of coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds, and 1 dried red chili. Once cooled, grind them coarsely.

*Step 4 – Cooking Amla:*

   – Heat oil in a pan, add dried red chili and panch phoron. Fry for a minute or two.

   – Add the deseeded amla, fry briefly, and then add salt and turmeric. Mix well, cover, and cook. The amla will release water when salt is added.

*Step 5 – Sweetening the Deal:*

   – Introduce nolen gur and sugar, ensuring a thorough mix. The sugar will caramelize, coating the amla. The mixture may become a bit watery initially, but don’t worry. Stir for a few minutes.

*Step 6 – Infusing Sweetness:*

   – Cover and let it sit for 3-4 minutes, allowing the amla to absorb the sweetness from the gur.

*Step 7 – Adding the Spice Essence:*

   – Once the water is absorbed, stir in the roasted spice powder. Mix well, and your Nolen Gur Amla Achar is ready.

*Step 8 – Storage:*

   – After the pickle has fully cooled, store it in an airtight container. Indulge in this delightful creation during your lunch or any meal of the day.

Discover the harmonious blend of opposing tastes as the tart amla and sweet nolen gur combine to create a pickle that is more than simply a condiment—it’s a work of culinary art. Blend together sweet, spicy, and savory flavors with this Nolen Gur Amla Achar. Every meal will be a festival of delicious flavors if you store it with care.
