- If possible don't make this pickle in a big batch as it become soft after some time .so I prefer to make small batches of this pickle as it is available easily during winters.
- The pickle change the color after some times and turns slightly greenish due to oxidation but is fine to consume .
- You can store it in refrigeration for a long shelf life.
- If the amla is small in size then use it whole.
- You can also add fresh green chili pieces in it.
