A spicy, tangy and mouth-watering Accompaniment!
Lemon Pickle is my all time favourite pickle. Got fresh limes from Indian store last night. Half of the limes, I made Sour Lemon pickle and spicy Lemon pickle. We could also use Lime for this recipe. Its very simple to make and I always add only use less oil than the store bought lemon pickle still with proper refrigeration, the shelf life is very good. My kids love this spicy pickle and they would love to eat more curd rice only because of this pickle :-).
Lemon and Mango pickle are favorite for many of us. Most of us enjoy these pickles as an accompaniment for curd rice. My dad loves to eat pickle with rava upma, sambar rice and even for Dosa. My MIL makes a yummy Sour Lemon Pickle with green chili and the juice inside that pickle itself is so mouth-watering. Both Sour and spice Lemon pickles are easy to make.
Preparing Lemon with Spices
In the pan, pour the oil and add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds begins to sputter add the hing and fry for a second and add the seasoned items along with fenugreek powder to the lemon. Stir the lemon pieces frequently atleast twice a day for 4-5 days. After 6 days the mouth-watering lemon pickle will be ready and store it in a refrigerator
