Ingredients to make Meat Pickle

  • Mutton- 1 kg (I used boneless)
  • garlic cloves - 50 grams (whole or sliced)
  • turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • chilli powder - 5-6 tsp (I took 6)
  • Nigella seeds (kalonji) - 1 tsp
  • fennel seeds (saunf) - 2 tbsp
  • salt - 2.5 tsp or to taste
  • lime juice- 2 tbsp
  • Whole spices (black cardamom cloves bay leaf and cinnamon)
  • oil about 8 ladles

How to make Meat Pickle

  1. Add turmeric powder and salt to the meat and cook on low-medium heat till all the liquids dry up and meat is tender. It will take about an hour or so of occasional stirring to ensure the meat doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Heat oil in a separate pan add the whole spices (black cardamom, cloves, bay leaf and cinnamon) then add the cooked meat to it and lightly saute. Keep the heat to medium so as not to excessively fry the meat which will make it hard.
  3. Add the garlic and continue cooking for a minute or two. Then take it off the heat and add the chilli powder, nigella seeds, fennel seeds and lime juice.
  4. Let the meat cool slightly before adding the chilli powder otherwise it turns to a blackish colour.
  5. Various other spices and nuts can be added but this is how we prefer it as the meat (flavour) is not over powered.
  6. This can also be made with bone in mutton but keep in mind it won't stay for as long.
  7. If you want to store it longer you'll probably need to add more oil. You can heat the oil,let it cool down and add it to the prepared pickle.
  8. If topped with oil, it will keep for 3-4 months outside otherwise it will keep for about 2 months in the fridge.

My Tip:

Just follow her recipe and you won't go wrong. Just the oil of it tastes so good with khichdi
