Uppilitta Nellikka Chutney














Ingredients:
  1. Brined Gooseberry /Uppilitta Nellikka - 3 large
  2. Brine - to taste (use this instead of salt)
  3. Fresh grated coconut - 1/2 cup
  4. Birdseye chilli /Kanthari mulaku - 5 (substitute with green chillies if necessary)
  5. Shallot - 1 small
  6. Curry leaves - few

Method:
Remove seeds from gooseberry but cutting into sections, discard the seeds.

Add all the ingredients to a blender/food processor and grind until all ingredients are mixed and coarsely ground.
Serve with rice.


Note: To make Gooseberry in Brine .
Wash and dry the gooseberry
Boil enough water to cover the gooseberry once you add it to a bottle.
Add salt to taste - the water should be salty - slightly less than ocean water
Let the water cool .
Add chillies to taste and the washed and dried gooseberry and mix well.
Keep aside for 2 weeks before you start using it.
The longer it keeps the softer and better it tastes.
