Nellika Pulli Achar ( Otaheite Gooseberry Pickle)
This fruit is quite confusing for first timers so it requires a bit of introduction. It looks like gooseberries but is soft like a star fruit and is very tangy. It's widely used for pickling around Asia and because of its resemblance to gooseberry it's called Nellika pulli in Kerala. In our family we have it raw with some rock salt but to preserve it for the rest of the year we pickle it mostly.
