Ginger Pickle

Tongue Tickle Tangy Sweet and Hot Ginger Pickle 

Pickles are always something that we usual preserve for a long period and use it as required. This ginger pickle is same as such needs only 15 minutes to prepare. This can be preserved for a year. Pickle goes well with dosa, chappati / roti, curd rice. Sometimes I use to mix with steamed white rice and have with slice of raw onion. It has a special flavors it gets heat from hot red chilli powder, spice and flavor from ginger, strong flavor of garlic, sweetness from jaggery and tartness from tamarind.
