GOOSEBERRY/AMLA SAARU

My Mom used to store gooseberries in salt and it lasted for an year. She used the berries when they were not available for making curry and saaru. Once I too stored  in salt but in few days all the berries got decayed. Since then I stopped storing in such a way as I was getting fresh gooseberries here. One such day I had a great desire to have gooseberry saaru. It is like thin soup. I never knew that it can be made with fresh berries too.  It simply came into my mind that why don't I make with it with fresh ones....and...it came out so well and I am very much satisfied with this.
