Lime Ginger Pickle

Like they say, 'There is always an exception' it goes. This pickle made from Lime is white in color. This is attributed to the fact that, unlike the usual pickles, this does not have Red chillies in its Ingredients list. We are going to use Green chillies and Ginger!

Its been one of my all time choices for Yogurt/Curd rice. The taste is just complimentary! No cooking involved at all is another reason why I love this pickle :P


Lime- 4, finely chopped
Green chillies- 5-6, coarsely chopped
Ginger-2 inch piece, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Hing/Asafoetida powder- 2 tsp

In a vessel, mix all the ingredients. Let this mixture stay undisturbed for a day. The following day, just give it good mix. Bottle it and refrigerate it for a couple of days more till the Lime softens. Enjoy with Yogurt rice!

Quantity Yield: A medium sized bottle.
