Lemon Ginger Pickle-Quick Lemon Pickle
Prep Time : 25 mins (including soaking time)
Serves: 1 cup
Recipe Category: Pickles
Recipe Cuisine: South Indian
Fresh juicy lemons – 6 medium size
Green chillies – 4-5 medium size (finely chopped)
Ginger – 1/4 cup finely chopped
Salt -3 tbsp flat (crystal/rock salt powdered)
Fenugreek powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1/4 tsp
For the seasoning
Oil – 1/4 cup
Mustard seeds -1 tsp
Asafoetida/hing -1/2 tsp
Dry roast fenugreek seeds and powder it. I usually dry roast 2-3 tbsp and store it for future use as it is difficult to grind 1-2 tsp in my mixie.
Wash, peel, pat it dry and finely chop ginger. Chop green chillies also finely.
Add turmeric powder, fenugreek powder and salt to it as shown in the picture above.
Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add asafoetida, finely chopped green chillies, ginger and cook for a few minutes on medium heat.
Then pour the oil along with the ginger and green chillies evenly all over the lemon. Leave it for 10 minutes. Do not mix it.
After 10 minutes, mix it well. Store it in a sterilized bottle once it cools and refrigerate it. It is ready for use after a day or two. The lemons will absorb the flavors and the skin of the lemon will become soft in a day or two.

An Open Book
Thanks for posting this Padhu..i was searching all over the internet for an easy pickle recipe and voila i have now found it..will try it out soon..
You have a wonderful food blog. I love the way you present the preparations. I tried this pickle recipe today. Have one question though, should I refrigerate it? I just finished making this. Thanks for the recipe.
Yes, you have to refrigerate it.
Thanks for your response. The pickle tastes really good. We were getting bored of eating the store bought pickles. Thanks again for this yummy recipe.
If you put it in a sterilized jar and seal it, how long can you leave it? I am looking for something that lasts a long time, more than a month.
Alliumstozinnias – This will not stay for long. You can have it for a maximum of 1 month if kept in the refrigerator and handled properly.
