  • 1/2 kg Amla
  • 100 grams Sesame Seeds
  • 70-80 grams Green Chilies
  • 50 grams Garlic Cloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Thin Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 50 grams Salt
  • 100-150 grams Oil
  1. Start by coarsely grinding the green chilies and 50 grams of garlic cloves.
  2. Steam the Amla for 15-20 minutes, allowing it to become tender and infused with flavor.
  3. While the Amla is steaming, turn your attention to the sesame seeds. Fry 100 grams of sesame seeds until they release their nutty aroma. In a separate pan, heat 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds, and 1 tbsp thin mustard seeds until they change color. Add the sesame seeds, fry briefly, and then allow them to cool. Grind the mixture into a fine powder.
  4. In a pan, heat 150-200 grams of sesame seed oil or groundnut oil.
  5. Add the steamed Amla to the pan, cooking it for 1-2 minutes until it absorbs the flavors. Once done, remove the Amla from the oil.
  6. In the same pan, introduce 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, and the coarsely ground green chilies. Fry for a minute, infusing the oil with aromatic spices.
  7. Cut off the stove, then add the coarsely ground garlic cloves to the mixture. Stir well and incorporate salt to taste.
  8. Next, introduce the powdered sesame seeds mixture along with 1/2 tsp turmeric powder. Ensure even mixing to create a harmonious blend of flavors.
  9. Finally, add the previously fried Amla to the mixture. Gently mix, allowing the Amla to absorb the rich, flavorful concoction.
  10. Allow the pickle to rest for a day, allowing the flavors to meld and mature.
  11. Store your Amla Sesame Pickle in an airtight container. The result is a delicious and aromatic pickle that promises to elevate your dining experience. Serve with steamed rice and savor the distinctive taste of this Telangana specialty!
