My mom used to make this pickle in large batches and store it in the porcelain jar and we use it for multiple years. I still remember the flavor and texture of this pickle when my mom transfer this from the big porcelain jar to the small container for serving. Sour Naarthangaai pickle doesn't have oil or chillies which goes very well with the curd rice. Also this will be very much used to serve with 'Kanji' (porridge) for the sick people and to the 'just delivered mom's' as part of the Pathiya Samayal.

Some people make the 'Dry' version of this pickle, which lasts for many years.
