This Spicy Amla Pickle is a true tongue-tickler, with the perfect masala for tangy amlas! Ideal to serve with any meal, it tastes especially great with rice and dal.

It has a lingering flavour, which is both spicy and sour, thanks to the use of various spices and seeds ranging from fennel and fenugreek seeds to chilli powder and asafoetida.

The fennel and nigella are crushed and added to the pickle, to give an immense boost to its flavour and aroma. Using mustard oil too gives the pickle a classic flavour.

Let the pickle soak for two hours before relishing it. You can also store it in the refrigerator for later use.
