Usirikaya Pachadi is Gooseberry Pickle in English.  It is not very hot/spicy and many love this for its unique taste of Gooseberries.

Usirikaya Pachadi IngredientsLarge sized Gooseberries – 1 kg
Red Chili Powder – 150 gm
Salt – 150 gm
Oil – ¼ kg
Mustard Seed Powder – 50 gm
Lemons – 2
Garlic – 125 gm
Ginger – 125 gm
Mustard Seeds – 1 tbsp
Cumin Seeds – 1 tbsp

Boil Usirikaya PachadiWash & dry Gooseberries under the shade for the excess water to evaporate.  We can use a cloth as water absorbent to rub the berries and remove the moist.  Take aside a small portion of oil and heat the remaining oil in a deep & wide pan.  Add the berries to it and allow it to boil till golden brown.  Ensure that it doesn’t become too soft.  Switch the stove off and let it cool down.

Mix Usirikaya PachadiMeanwhile, grind the garlic & ginger into fine paste and squeeze out the lemon juice straining away the seeds.  Once the berries & oil is at room temperature, add red chili powder, salt, lemon juice, garlic paste & mustard seed powder and mix them well.  Heat the oil that was kept aside & add mustard & cumin seeds.  Allow it to crackle and add it to the pickle.  Stock it in a neat & dry jar for a week and then savor it with hot rice & ghee.
