HOT AND SWEET LIME PICKLE........

This is what was inside the bottle...
I MUST SAY THAT WE HAVE BRILLIANT AND BRIGHT BLOGGERS IN OUR BLOGOSPHERE ...
most of you or should i say all of you were right...
In some little way offcourse...





I KNOW ITS EASY TO GUESS , BUT NEVER THE LESS ITS FUN SO THE QUESTION...

GUESS WHAT I HAVE MADE...(IF YOU GIVE THE INGREDIENTS THE BETTER)
My mother in law was in Goa and she had this sweet and hot lime pickle at her sister in laws place i.e my husbands uncle i.e mama's place , she liked it a lot and told me about it, I called
up mami and got the recipe.
Its extremely simple but you have to have patience till you eat it as it tastes good only after a period of 1 month.
chopp 6 or 200 gms lemon into rough pieces as seen in the picture
take care to discard the seeds.
grate 250 gms jaggery
take a pan and heat a little or 2 tsp ghee
add the grated jaggery and add 1-2 tsp chilli powder , and asoefotida to it
stir and let it thicken for some time.
add a little water and then add the chopped lemon.
add a little salt and let it simmer for sometime , stir once or twice
dont let the jaggery mixture stick or get too thick
you can add a tsp of pickle masala to it too , for some variation in taste.
remove and cool.
You will find that it tastes a bit sour because of the taste of the lemon rind has come into the pickle. refrigerate for about a month before you eat it.(These were the instructions that i got, its not yet one month and i havent tasted the aftertaste about which i will definetly let you know)
This is my first experiment at making a hot and sweet lemon pickle so time will tell if i will be repeating the act.
{ a tip -- soak the lemon before cutting into a bowl of hotwater, this makes the sour taste from the rind dissapper and makes the juice give you more juice.--i havent tried this method as yet)

It looks so very very good. I first found a wonderful salty lime pickle in Goa, which I have not really been able to find anywhere else, let alone here in Australia. Wonderful to see this post.
