RAW MANGO PICKLE......


RAW MANGO PICKLE.....

PICKLES….
OH! How much I love pickles.
Pickles is something I have with all my meals, pickles give taste to your food especially dal rice and yogurt or dahi rice.
Pickles are my husband’s mom’s specialty, I feel no one can make better pickles than she can; she makes extraordinary pickles which are divine to taste. Her raw mango or kairee pickle is the best and that is what I have featured in today’s post.
I have childhood memories of eating pickles, which my mother used to make with plain rice and this combination works and tastes real good-only pickle and rice. However, not too much, as it will burn your insides it should be a little and lots of rice.
I love pickles with parathas, dosas, rotis, bread and even with south Indian idlis.
If there is a vegetable that is not very tasty, I just take some pickle and lo… my food is as yummy as ever, that’s the magic of a good pickle.

I have tried to take good pictures, and so I am posting two. Please tell me which you feel is the best, as I have said earlier I am in the process of improving my food photography by trial and error and only friends like you all can help. I know blog readers see great photographs daily and so can be of help to an amateur like me to improve and progress. Do the sight of pickles make you drool it does that for me

I like the second photograph the best.The lighting is much better and the pickle looks mroe fresh...maybe if u imporved the lighting(angle) on the first one it would look good too

How lovely. Mahek the photo is great. All the color looks really nice. Good work

Forgot to add - in terms of lighting and color the second photo captures the pickle best. It def makes me drool :-)
But the terracota horse (?) does not blend. Keeping the dish in mind the barni or ceramic jar works better as a prop.
Who says you cant have figurines in food photos? It would hv been good though if I could see it completely.
