Call it Achaar or oorkaai, pickles are a hot favourite in many Indian States. A part of the staple Indian platter or thali, mostly consumed with curd rice at the meal end, pickles, when made perfectly, make up for the lack of taste in any of the dishes.
Perfect accompaniment for curd rice, dal rice and ghee rice, parathas, rotis, naan and kulchas, pickles are made from many vegetables like mango, lime, garlic, ginger, tomato, green chilli, onion, gooseberry or Amla, carrot or greens like gongura. Lemon tops the list and competes with Mango.
Lemons with thin skin and heavy weight are preferred for making pickles, since they are juicier.
Lemon is marinated with salt and turmeric, so that the liquid is released. After a couple of days, chilli powder and roasted fenugreek powder are added with tempered mustard oil or sesame oil. The shelf life of lemon pickle thus made is one year. Lemon is best stored in ceramic jars.
