Garlic Pickle


Back in India We once purchased Garlic pickle ,as both of us like Garlic too much . But some how the taste of that that ready made pickle was such that it made me dislike Garlic for a while :( , at least when ever I saw that jar it didn't tempted me to try it again :v . When I come to hear about JFI-Garlic, immediately I thought to make this :D .
I googled for its recipe :f , but somehow I found none of them up to my liking . As I had pickle masala on hand I thought to make my own version of pickle with garlic . I added the fragrant ingredients of my liking and it turned out the best Pickle I ever had. Here is my recipe of Garlic pickle.


Ingredients:
1 cup garlic cloves( if too big then cut into half)
1/2 cup mustard oil. ( or anyone you like - traditionally we use mustard seeds oil for making pickles)
1/2 cup pickle masala( if you dont have this ready made then follow this simple process . Take coarsly grounded fenugreek seeds(methi na kuriya) ,coarsly grounded mustard seeds( Rai na kuriya) and red chilli powder in the proportion of 1:2:2 . Mix all together with slight hing(asafoetida powder ) and little turmeric powder - pickle masala is ready to use. )
2 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp fennel seeds(saunf )
salt to taste
Lime juice to preserve .

Method:
In a small pan heat the oil, when little hot first add the garlic cloves, remember to cut them in halves if they are too big. in a medium to slow flame let it fry till it turn yellow to slightly brown next add pickel masala and fennel seeds, salt and coriander seeds to it.
Mix all together very well and turn off the heat. Add 2 tsp lime juice to it. Let it cool and store in a air tight container. You can serve it fresh though this tastes best after 2 days . while storing it check that the proportion of oil should not be less i.e. oil level should be such that garlic cloves should be dip into oil.This way it can be store for a long time at room temperature.
Its simple , easy to make and full of wonderful flavor of fennel and coriander . With all such qualities in a tiny spoon of this pickle I feel it impossible to ignore it :D .

This flavorful spicy pickle goes to Mathy for JFI-Garlic this month. Thank you Mathy for choosing Garlic :) .
