Ginger Tamarind Pickle

Pickles can be tried in varieties with  ur choicest Vegetables, Fruits n dry fruits. Try this Ginger-Tamarind pickle for a change. This is an instant pickle or thokku that needs stir-frying in the process - for 10 mins continuously to get it done. This yumm combo pickle tastes so good that I thought to share this recipe with U. This can be kept upto 15 days or even a month's time if preserved properly or refrigerated.U can omit tamarind and try this recipe with 2-3 tbsp lemon juice for a healthier option. Try this recipe at home and enjoy Sambar rice, Curd rice or Coconut rice with this pickle. Enjoy ur Meal!. BonAppetit!.
