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.
