Nellika / Gooseberry Thokku

Normally we make Nellika / Gooseberry  pickle. This one Nellika Thoku, its spicy, sour and a little bitter from the gooseberry. Very easy to make and good combination with warm rice. Here is recipe for you all to try.


  • Nellika / Gooseberry 15 nos
  • Red Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp
  • Fenugreek Powder 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin Powder 1/4 tsp
  • Salt
  • Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
  • Gingelly Oil 2 to 3 tbsp


Wash and nellika/ gooseberry, keep it aside. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, once it splutter add fenugreek powder, keep the flame on low. Now add grated nellika / gooseberry and stir well. Add red chilli powder, kashmiri chilli powder and turmeric powder. Add salt and mix well. 

Cook it on low medium flame till all the moisture is absorbed. It may take 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Store in airtight container and keep it in the fridge. Serve with warm rice.

NB: If you don't have gingelly oil use any other vegetable oil. If you feel the bitter taste from gooseberry is more then add a pinch of sugar and mix well. Enjoy cooking..
