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.

Spicy Lemon Pickle

Notes:

  1. Buy tender lemons which has soft skins. The same pickle can be done with Lime but it will be little bitter
  2. Dry roast 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds till they turn red and then grind it to a smooth powder. Store this fenugreek powder in a air-tight container and use it for pickle, lemon rice, mango rice, tomato rice. For most of the sour dishes, adding fenugreek powder enhances the flavor. Also for any pickle, adding fenugreek powder enhances its flavor.
  3. Also use dry spoon when you serve the pickle so that shelf life will be more. Also refrigerate the pickle to maintain its  freshness.

I tried once with lime but it turned out so bitter. The skin is bitter and hard and not blending well with the spice powder. You can try getting baby lemons from Sprouts. I usually buy those and make lemon pickle
