You will need:

  • 1 cup garlic cloves
  • 10 green chillies (optional)
  • ½ cup vinegar or ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup gingelly oil (nallennai)
  • salt as reqd
To roast and grind:
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 10 dry red chillies
  • ½ tsp fenugreek seeds (venthayam)
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • few curry leaves
Procedure:

Step 1:

Peel off the skin from the garlic and keep it aside. If the garlic is too big chop the garlic cloves lengthwise.

Step 2:

Dry roast the spices:

Heat a pan on medium high heat. Dry roast coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and cumin seeds for 3 to 5 mins till it leaves a good aroma and well roasted. Then dry grind the spices and keep it aside

Step 3:

Heat oil in a pan and add garlic, green chillies to it. Saute garlic till it turns golden brown color. Then add the ground spices to it and saute well for a min.

Step 4:

Now low the heat and add vinegar/ lemon juice to it along with salt. Taste the pickle and check for salt. Enjoy!!!!!!


Hint:
  • I added green chillies with garlic pickle, because i love green chilli pickle too.
  • To thicken the pickle, you can do one more simple step. Peel ¼ cup garlic and microwave it for 1 to 2 min till it becomes soft. Grind it to a fine paste and add it after adding the ground spices.
