Lime Pickle ingredients

  • 3 t fenugreek seeds
  • 3 t Mustard seeds
  • 6 t Chilli powder
  • 3 t Ground Turmeric
  • 250 ml Vegetable oil

Cooking Lime Pickle

Cut each lime lengthwise into 8 thin wedges. Place in a large sterilized bowl, sprinkle with salt and set aside.

Put fenugreek and mustard seeds in a frying pan and dry roast them over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until they begin to pop. Put them in a mortar and grind them to a fine powder with a pestle.

Add chilli powder and turmeric and mix well. Sprinkle spice mixture over limes and stir. Pour over oil and over with a dry cloth. Leave in a sunny place for 10-12 days, until softened. Pack into sterilized jars then seal and store in a cool, dark place. It can be kept for 1-2 weeks. Serve at room temperature, garnished with coriander.


Variation: To make Lemoni Picklei, substitute 8 lemons for the limes.
