Wash the gooseberries twice with water.
Take a pan and pour 1 cup water into it. Put the gooseberries into it and cover it with a lid. Cook the gooseberries on low flame till they become tender. Check after every 5 minutes. If you feel that the water has reduced and gooseberries are still hard, then put more water into the pan.
