Nellikkya Pachadi | Gooseberry Pachadi

This is simple and special side dish served in all Kerala Sadyas (feasts). Actually, this dish is slightly thick in consistency. But you can adjust the consistency by adding more or less of curd. The main ingredient used in this dish is gooseberry and you all know that it is very healthy.
