‘Neebu ka achaar‘ or lemon pickle is my favorite.Lemon is a versatile ingredient.You can make it sweet lemon pickle or sour one.It tastes great with Indian flat breads.Perfectly goes with rice dishes as well.We can make it easily with very little cooking.Pickles today are a big industry.Commercial ones add preservatives,citric acid and vinegar to ensure long shelf time.However they are not good for health in the long run.
Home made pickles need only one careful skill.
We need to store this in a dry bottle.
Avoid touching the pickle with bare hands so that no moisture sneaks in.
We use jaggery in this recipe, so it helps avoid the chemical sugar, used in commercial pickles in the market.It is also gluten-free and vegan.
