White pickles are the best option for those who suffer gastric problems when having pickles containing lots of red chilli powder. Both of my kids hate spicy food, so I prepared this pickle for them to take to school as a side dish with rice . If you love much spiciness add lots of green chillies and black pepper corns.
bitter-gourd 3 medium size
garlic cloves 1/4 cup small
ginger chopped 1 Tbsp
green chillies 10 chopped
curry leaves few
pepper powder 2 tsp or more
vinegar 1 cup
mustard seeds 2 tsp
fenugreek seeds 1/4 tsp
water enough to cook
How I prepared,
Wash bitter-gourds,remove seeds and cut into thin pieces.
Marinate with salt and keep in refrigerator for 2 hours.
Heat a heavy bottomed vessel, pour enough oil.
Allow mustard seeds to splutter, then put fenugreek seeds.
Saute green chillies, garlic cloves, ginger, curry leaves,pepper powder and bitter-gourd pieces together.
Saute for few minutes and then add little water enough to cook.
When it begins to cook, pour vinegar and boil.
Check salt, add more vinegar if needed.
Allow to cool, keep in an container.
