LEMON PICKLED recipe

Ingredients

  • *DAY-ONE*
  • Fresh lemon – 8 washed and towel dried
  • Garlic – 2 pods peeled
  • Raisins – ¼th of a cup cleansed and sundried
  • White vinegar – ¾ of a cup
  • Salt – 3 heaped teaspoons
  • Flavourless oil of any kind – 1 tablespoon
  • *DAY-14*
  • Dried red chillies – 8
  • White Vinegar- ½ cup
  • Sugar- 3 teaspoons
  • Salt for adjusting taste

Cooking Instructions

In a deep pan, mix oil and lemon. Cook, stirring once in a while, till the lemon slightly changes colour and starts to crack. Stop exactly

when it starts cracking because we don’t want to lose any juice!

Now remove from stove and let it cool. Then wipe lemon clean of oil and dice into eight pieces each.

Using a steamer, steam garlic for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and wipe away all the moisture on the surface.

Now take a clean, dry air tight jar and mix all the ingredients listed *WEEK-ONE* and close the jar.

Let it stand for 2 weeks before proceeding further.

2 or 3 times a week, open jar and mix everything using a dry spoon. Or you could just shake it around if the jar is not full to the brim.
