Here is one type of pickle from North India, which is known as Leswa Ka Achar/Gunda/Lasoda Pickle. There are so many names for this Goonda, Gunda, Lasoda , Auriyaa Lasoda, Glueberries.

This is a homemade Lasoda Pickle. Made the traditional way with authentic Indian spices all in your kitchen pantry, used mostly daily for cooking.

My Notes
If you do not want to add too much oil then mix in ½ cup of oil and refrigerate this pickle, this shelf life is only 2 to 3 weeks.

Happy Home-maker and culinary enthusiast.


  1. I am SO intrigued by this recipe...not the least of which is because I have never seen that fruit. If I can get my hands on some, I will definitely try this process. Thanks for joining me, Sneha.

  2. Another ingredient with which I am unfamiliar but they sound wonderful.

  3. Gunda is completely new to me! I'll have to check in Little India here to see if they have some!

  4. I had to look it up because I am unfamiliar with this little fruit also. It is apparently very popular for making pickle since it's sour to begin with. Wish I could give this a try!

  5. This is an amazing pickle and would love to try. I need to check in the groceries here where I can get gunda. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
