Here's one of our favortite chamanthis that takes us back to eating simple meals in those olden kerala tharvadu (ancestoral home) kitchens and this one doesn't even take the time to count from one to a hundred.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Gooseberrys in salt water/brine: 3-4
Garlic: 2 pods
Grated Coconut: 1/4 cup
Curry Leaves: few
*Since we didn't find the fresh gooseberrys to start pickling, we made this from the store bought "Grandma's Uppilitta Nellika"
Deseed the gooseberries and chop them into small pieces.Combine rest of the ingredients and grind in the mixer. Mix together and shape them into balls and serve them with steaming rice.
