Fresh turmeric pickle (kachche haldi ka achaar)

A quick and easy pickle with very few ingredients.

250 grams raw fresh turmeric (kachche haldi and Amba haldi)
1 teaspoon salt (I used rock salt)
3 large lemons or more if required
Mustard seeds powder -1tsp
Fresh green garlic – 4,5 strands

Rinse the turmeric roots first in water. Peel them and chop them into small pieces.

Extract the juice from the lemons and keep aside.

In a bowl add the turmeric, salt and lemon juice, stir everything well. The lemon juice should completely cover the turmeric, otherwise the pickle may get spoiled.

Fill everything in a clean sterilized jar and keep it in the fridge for 6 days.

Shake the jar everyday, after 6 days, the pickle is ready to be served.

This turmeric pickle stays good for about 2 months in the refrigerator.

For further taste you can also try adding mustard seeds powder 1-2tsp and finely chopped green garlic…

Go a head and give it a try.
