Best Pickle Recipes
Pickle making is an ancient tradition in India which has been loved and followed by or mothers and grandmothers. The Western world regards it as the art of preservation or fermentation but for us it is a creation of a unique accompaniment that goes with every meal. We all have grown up eating delicious, crunchy and tangy pickles made by our grandmothers and mothers.
No meal is complete without them. Spicy green chilli pickles, mango pickles tossed with fenugreek and cardamom, bright yellow cauliflower pickles – you name it! In most Indian households, it is a common sight to find big glass jars filled with freshly made pickles sitting on a sunny window sill. It is a method of developing the flavors and letting them mature.
Over the years, however, the art of pickle making at home is slowly fading with mass produced variants readily available in the stores these days. But, they miserably fail to match up to the rustic flavors characteristic of the home-made pickles.

Pickles are deep rooted in our culture and have the wonderful ability of taking us back in time. I still remember the large porcelain jaadis (jars) of Avakaya (mango) pickle that would arrive every summer from my father’s ancestral village in the West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. Pickles would be stored either in these jaadis (they’re called bharanis in Kerala) or in stone containers in our ancestral home with wooden spoons.
