Lemon pickle,easy way


We get so many pickles in the market.But they are commercialised.Health conscious people think twice before consuming.Home made pickles have their own merit and it is always welcome.


Ingredients:

Lemon---2 numbers
Redchilly powder---3tab.sp
Asafotida---1tea.sp
Fenugreek powder---1tea.sp
Salt----2tab.sp

oil---1tab.sp

Method:

Wash and cut the lemon in to small pieces.
Remove the seeds.
Add all the other ingredients to it.
Mix well and cover it.
Keep it in the pressure cooker and cook it for 3 sounds.Take it out.
Heat the oil. Pour the oil over the lemon and mix well.
Pickle is ready.

Tips:

As we keep chilly powder and salt ready,same way dry roast some fenugreek and powder it in a blender and keep ready.
When we make dosa,we can add little of this powder,the taste of the dosa is doubled.
When we make buttermilk kuzhambu,we can use this to add flavor.

Fenugreek is very good for health.
