Ginger-Garlic Pickle

Among the pickles my most favourite one is 'Ginger-Garlic pickle'.I never use or make pickles often,but if i think to make pickles means my choice is always ginger garlic.I never prepared or even tried any pickles before i step into uae.This also i learned it from my sister' Indra' the great cook.She always encourages me
for my new trials and taste it darely and gives her comments.The only thing is my hubby and she always use to say ya,its good,nice etc., and that those words makes me  to assume myself as a good cook.Thanks a lottt for her.I send this recipe to vardhini's ''herbs and Flowers- Garlic'' event.
                                              
INGREDIENTS;
                           Garlic            -- 1 [whole]
                           Ginger           -- a large piece
                           Sesame oil     -- 5 to 6 tsp
                           Dry red chilly -- 10 nos.[according to ur spicy ]
                           Fenugreek     -- 1/2 tsp
                           Tamarind       -- a lemon size
                           Asofoetida     -- a small piece
                           Salt                -- as needed
METHOD;
                 Peal the garlic cloves and wash,set aside.
                 Remove the ginger's skin completly,wash it and cut into small pieces.
                In a dry pan, fry the red chilly well,don't turn it black.                                             
                Set aside,fry the fenugreek in the same pan till it pops.
                In a spoon of oil fry the asofoetida,keep aside. 
                After cooled,grind the chilly,asofoetida and fenugreek like powder.
                Then add the tamarind and salt with water,grind them as a paste.
                Place a pan,pour the sesame oil and heat it.
                Add garlic and ginger,saute well for 3 to 5 min in a medium flame.
                Then add the tamarind chilly paste,add small amount of water.
                 Mix well,allow it to boil for 10 minutes,till the oil comes out of it.
                       NOW GINGER GARLIC PICKLE IS READY.
                 Allow it to cool then preserve it.Hope u love this.
TIPS;
        Add little amount of water.
        U can add curry leaves too.
        Add  half spoon fenugreek.otherwise it gives bitter taste.

                    THANKS FOR VISITING ADD UR WORDS TOO.
