Ingredients:
Mahali root (Sarasaparilla)350gms
Lemon8

Salt1/4 Cup
Turmeric Powder1/2 teaspoon

  1. Wash the Mahali kizhagu in water. Pat dry and then slit each root vertically into halves. Take out the hard vein inside it and discard.

  2. Finely chop the root into small pieces and soak them in water till you are finished with chopping. This is to avoid de-colourisation of the root.

  3. Now drain the water and take the chopped mahali root in a vessel. Add finely chopped green chillies, turmeric and salt. Sqeeze out juice of 4 lemons in a small bowl

  4. Keep the lemon juice aside and finely chop the rest of the 4 lemons. Add the lemon bits along with lemon juice to the vessel containing chopped mahali and toss it well so the all the ingredients are mixed together nicely

  5. Store this in a air-tight container and keep it aside for couple of days for the root to absorb all the lemon juice, salt and green chilli taste into it. Store it in an air-tight container and refrigerate it to have a long shelf life

  6. After couple of days, we can serve this yummy mahali root sour pickle and relish with curd rice !!!

    1. Hi Krishna, we can wash it in plain water itself. I have seen my mom washing the mahali in plain water only.
