AMMUMMA'S LIME PICKLE

Nobody can beat my ''Ammumma's'' recipe specially when we come across her lime pickle and that too not as a whole, but only with lemon peel. Yes its the outter most part of the lime. She does for me offen and send it with my parents whenever they visit my place. This recipe is for the people who dont know the rich taste of lemon peel and just throw out after their use. Guys, dont do that any more, because that can be formed into a delicious spicy pickle. So collect them and store it in a bottle. Make sure each piece is applied with salt so that it would remain fresh for more than 2 weeks. I was so glad to prepare her pickle for the first time but, I must say that it did not turned as tasty as my granny did. None of us can equally or match our recipe with our granny's recipe. True right? The spicyness and the tangy flavour of lime is just outstanding that I have it as it is. Also you can feel the crunchness of ginger and green chilli on every bite. Its too good with curd rice and a best compliment with idlies and dosas too. Do try this for sure.


INGREDIENTS.

1 Cup Cutted outter layer lime ( each piece can be cutted into 4)

1/4 Chopped Ginger.

5 tbsp Chopped Green chilli.

4 to 5 tbsp Chilli powder.

1 tsp Vinegar.

1/4 Cup Gingilly Oil.

Hing as per required.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Heat oil in non stick kadai. Add cutted lime with dash of salt and stir for a min followed by ginger and green chilli.

Stir the mixture till the lime piece becomes tender. Add chilli powder, hing and salt as per required. At the time of removing from flame add vinegar and mix then thoroughly. Transfer them in a dry cleaned container jars.



Enjoy!!
