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
