Pickles are my favourite. Here in India we dont use vinegar to pickle any veggies (except cucumber). We use oil and chilli powder to make it a perfect side dish for curd rice/ roti/ dosa and even bread๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹. I make pickles of every kind and store them for over 6 months! Lemon pickle is the easy one to make (except for the chopping part๐Ÿ˜ฉ). You can use this pickle immediately. But the more it sits, the more tastier it will get. Refridgerated shelf life 6+ months.

What you will need

Lemon - 15 nos.

Sesame/olive oil - 100 ml

Salt - 1.5 tsp (adjust according to taste)

Mustard 1 teaspoon

Chilli powder 1 tablespoon

A pinch of turmeric & asafoetida powder

feugreek 4-5

How to cook

1

Cut each lemon either into four parts or 8 parts. Pressure cook with quarter cup of water for 3 whistles (you can also cook on stovetop in low flame until soft.) Once lemons are cooked add salt. Keep aside & BRING TO ROOM TEMPERATURE.
