Amla Pickle oil free method / Amla Pickled in tangy Brine solution is my favorite way to pickle and preserve Amla during the season. It is a very easy to follow fuss free recipe so even beginners can make it very easily. Now a day people avoid eating oily and spice rich pickle so it is also a very good for those people.
