Hello Nitin,

First of all I would like to congratulate you for winning the contest.

The images clicked by you are very good and I liked that you shared your photography within this article.

I am curious about the Gooseberry Sweet Pickle. I would like to tell other readers that in the method of preparation of gooseberry sweet pickle, Nitin has unknowingly mentioned 300 liters of water.

It is 300 ml of water.

It happens that we miss on the units but it is to be understood by readers about the units used for preparation of any recipe.

Have a nice day.
