Amla Pickle (Indian Gooseberry Pickle)

I came across this recipe from Rekha Divekar on Instagram. Amla was in season and it looked simple and easy to make and thought I would give it a try. This was the first time I was making a pickle. Turned out to be very good. I used green chilies instead of red chili powder. It is one of the best ways to use Amla (Gooseberry) in your diet.
