I do not have to write much about Pickle. I learnt this recipe from my mom. Give it a try. Have fun. Ingredients:
10 Lemon cut into small pieces( used green ones)
1 cup table Salt
2 tbsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Methi seeds / fenugreek seeds
3/4 cup Red Chili powder ( I used 1/4 cup extra hot and 1/2 cup regular)
2-3 Tbsp Cooking Oil
2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida / Hing
Mix cut Lemon and salt in a bowl. Then transfer into a well dried, air tight jar and keep aside for 3-4 days. Tilt the jar every day for proper mixing. After 3-4 days you can see colour change in the cut Lemon.
Dry roast Mustard seeds and Fenugreek seeds separately until you hear crackling sound.
Then make fine powder of dry roasted spices togather.
After 4 days, transfer the salted Lemon in to a clean, well dried bowl, add red Chili powder, Mustard- Methi powder. Mix well.
Temper with Mustard seeds and Hing. ( Heat oil in a pan, Add Mustard seeds, when you see the seeds crackling, add hing and pour on top of the pickle). Mix well.
Again transfer the Pickle to the same jar used before and keep aside for one more day.
