About Grandma's Citron Pickle Recipe

Grandma's Citron Pickle is a must try recipe by all. It's a simple recipe made with citron fruit. The skin of the fruit is unlike Lemon. It has to be well treated by soaking before mixing the masalas. The masalas are chilli powder, turmeric powder, fenugreek powder, asafoetida powder, salt and gingely oil. Well soaked pickle can be used for two three years, if it's stored in a moisture free jars. My Grandma's special Citron Pickle recipe is a must try recipe.
