Aranellikkai Thuvaiyal

#AranellikkaiThuvaiyal  #GooseberryChutney  : The botanical name of #aranellikkai is Phyllanthus acidus.
It is known as #Gooseberry in English and also called by various names like Otaheite gooseberry, Malay gooseberry, Tahitian gooseberry. Country gooseberry, Star gooseberry, Starberry, or West India gooseberry [ source : wikipedia ].  It tastes very sour and tart. These berries can be enjoyed raw with salt & pepper or salt & chilli powder.
As an experiment I prepared #Thuvaiyal [ #Chutney ] using #Aranellikkai.
It was very tasty and loved by all. So here I am sharing the way to do it.
