Nelli(Gooseberry) Hindi

5 Kg medium sized Gooseberry / Nellikayi(Preferred: Wild Gooseberry)
1.5 cups Salt

Wash the gooseberries, wipe them using a clean cotton cloth.

Keep them under sunlight for about 3-4 hrs, mash them using any hard material like stone.

Remove the seeds from gooseberry, add around 1/2 cup of salt, mix well and put them in a plastic/glass jar and cover the lid tightly.

Keep this for around one week until it becomes smooth and mix this mixture 3 days once.(If it is not smooth, crush them in a mixer and keep it for next 2-3 days.)

Grind them into smooth paste by adding required amount of salt(around 1 cup) without adding any water as shown in the picture below.

Store this in a glass/plastic jar/bottle. Apply little amount of salt on top of it, cover the lid properly. This can be used after 6 months. It can be used up to 3-4 years without any refrigeration. For longer shelf life preserve this in a refrigerator. This can be used for preparing Tambli and Gojju and its good for digestion.

I was searching for this recipe and glad that I came across this authentic nellindi recipe.
For me, nellindi is a quickfix medicine for minor stomach ailments like diarrhea, bloated stomach etc. Hot rice with nellindi and little ghee does the magic.

Same with me. Its a nostalgic dish for me. In our childhood we used to relish it. So far I could not get the authentic way of preparing the same as the younger generation not heard of it at all.
