Gooseberry eaten in any form is good for health. I have used the gooseberries which are stored in salt water for this recipe. It remains good for a long time. After 10-15 days, it becomes very soft. One gooseberry in the morning along with breakfast is very good for health, specially for diabetic patients.
In South india, gooseberries are boiled in salt water with little turmeric powder and stored. Then whenever we want, the gooseberries can be used to make chutney.
