This Indian Pickle tastes amazing!
So often it is the little things – the easy things that make a good meal great. This holds true whether you are eating Indian food or any other type of cuisine.
I used to live in Monterey California where my friends and I frequented an outstanding Middle Eastern restaurant as often as we could afford it.
They used to bring out a lemon pickle that was served with lamb and flat breads along with a yogurt and cucumber sauce. It was amazing and not far off what I am going to show you here.
You could make this a lime pickle too.
One of the most popular pickles available in markets and Indian restaurants in the UK is the lime Indian Pickle. Limes could be substituted here but I hope you try this lemon version. The bright yellow colour really brightens up a dish.
This recipe only takes minutes to make. Everyone loves a good homemade lemon pickle. It’s so much better than anything you can purchase in a jar.
It packs a punch for you spice lovers out there. In fact when I make this Indian lemon pickle at home I use two more hot chilli peppers. Call me crazy!
You should experiment and add or take out spices as you see fit.
Are you ready to try this? It only takes minutes.
Believe me – once you try this lemon pickle, you will never go back to store bought. Not that store bought Indian pickle is bad! This one is simply so much better.
