Ingredients and Method
garlic 12 cloves
green chilly 12
mustard seeds 2 teaspoons
black pepper corns 2 teaspoons
vinegar 1 table spoon
sesame oil or coconut oil 2 table spoons
curry leaves few
Chop curry leaves,green chilies and garlic. Crush mustards and pepper corns.Cut lemon into thin slices. Cook it with 1/2 cup water and salt. Cook and reduce water. Heat oil, saute garlic, green chillies and curry leaves.Don't saute too much but for few seconds only. Add lemon and crushed ingredients. Mix well. Add vinegar and enough salt and mix well keeping on the low flame.
I prepare this without cooking lemon, so it would be little bitter but after two days it tastes good.
You can cook lemon in water before cutting it. Discard the water and chop lemon.Then follow the above method. Add ginger if you like.
