FRESH TURMERIC GINGER PICKLE IN LEMON JUICE (HALAD AANI AALYAACHA LIMBACHYA RASAATLA LONCHA)

Fresh Turmeric Ginger Pickle In Lemon Juice, is a tangy pickle made from fresh yellow and white turmeric roots, ginger, green chillies and without the typical pickle spices. These roots are immersed in lemon juice and refrigerated. The use of green chillies is totally optional, but it does give a nice flavour to the pickle.

This pickle is very good for digestion and our health as fresh ginger and turmeric both have various benefits, not to forget the vitamin C from the lemon juice! Well, I was introduced to this pickle in the unlikeliest of places, a hospital! Many years back, when I was very ill and had to be admitted to a hospital, there was an old lady on the bed beside mine. She was a Gujrati, and I think this is their speciality. When she observed that I couldn’t consume much food, she offered this pickle to me, which awakened my taste buds!

It is from that lady, that I got this recipe where I added the green chillies and asafoetida on my mom’s advice. This pickle can be had with meals even when we are sick! That’s it’s best benefit! It is a delicious and nutritious accompaniment to any meal!

  1. I think I will try this! I have a lot of fresh ginger and turmeric that were grown locally, yes, in Vermont! The farmers are ordering the stock from Hawaii and our humid, long-daylight summers seem to produce great ginger. I have tucked lots in the freezer, but I often pickle ginger for use on sushi, etc. Haven’t added turmeric before!
