Hi everyone! I'm interested in a recipe I saw on a television program a year or so ago. It was an Indian cuisine inspired program, and the recipe I'm interested in obtaining was for leomn pickles. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

Re: Lemon pickle

Jamie's recipe for Lemon Pickle from his book "Happy Days with the Naked Chef"

2 teaspoons mustard seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 handful of curry leaves (optional)
1 teaspoon urad dhal -small dried split peas- (optional)
1 teaspoon chilli powder
4 tablespoons wine vinegar
2 lemons, washed, deseeded and chopped

Fry the mustard seeds in the hot oil.  As they begin to pop add the curry leaves and urad dhal.  Lower the heat and add the chilli powder.  Cook until brown then add the vinegar.  Stir in the lemon.  Remove from the heat and leave to cool.  Can be stored in the fridge for a week.

Re: Lemon pickle

Usually pickle is served with any traditional Indian meal. It can be a good accompaniment to rotis or breads or dosas
