  20. awesome pickle receipe and the little ones simply superb !!

  21. பூண்டினை வேகவைக்காமலேயே நேரடியாக ஊறுகாய் தயாரிக்க முடியுமா. தெரிந்தால் விவரிக்குமாறு கேட்டுக் கொள்கிறேன்

    1. Yes, you can following the same method but it will take a long time for the garlic to get soft and also you will get the raw flavor of garlic which is not very delicious. You just steam the garlic for 5 minutes, that is enough.I make this pickle often and it is a great hit only in my family but also with friends and relatives.

  22. Is it necessary to add vinegar in garlic pickle..are there any other substitute.? I am allergic to tamarind , vinegar etc.

    1. Then only alternative to vinegar is lemon juice but I have not tried using lemon juice.

  23. Hi there, I luv garlic pickle n this seems delicious. But is it necessary to store it in the refrigerator? Doesn't it keep well at room temperature? And if chilli powder isn't sautéed in oil as given in ur recipe, wud it hav raw smell?

    1. Yes, you have to store in the refrigerator. As we are pouring very hot oil over the chilli powder, it will not have raw smell.
