Every family has that person who loves pickle unconditionally. I know my family has one, because the pickle almost always vanishes within days! Maybe that is why we prepare the pickle so often? In fact, many prefer pickles as a spread for bread rather than jam these days. Be it any dish, any occasion, any place, any day, it won't be a surprise to find that pickles are a part of the menu. One of the most popular pickles today is the lemon pickle. The spiciness of the pickle combined with the sourness of lemons gives it a very unique flavour. Today we will learn how to make this heavenly lemon pickle (Elumichai oorugai) following an easy recipe presented to us by Mrs. Hema.


Lemon - 10 no.’s
Juice of Lemon from 5 no.’s
Turmeric powder - 2 tsp.
Rock Salt - 4 tsp.
Roasted Fenugreek powder - 2 tsp.
Chili powder - 3 Tbsp.
