About Grandma's Garlic Pickle Recipe

This is our family favourite garlic pickle that my mom in law learned from her Grandma's kitchen. A mouth watering pickle with chunks of garlic that aids digestion.

Ingredients to make Grandma's Garlic Pickle

  • 250 gms garlic peeled
  • 100 gm tamarind
  • 60 ml of gingelly oil
  • 3 tspn chilli powder (or more to suit your taste buds )
  • A pinch of hing/asafoetida

How to make Grandma's Garlic Pickle

  1. Heat a pan with 2 tsp of oil. Add all the garlic. Roast them well until they turn golden brown in colour. Remove them to a plate and let it cool.
  2. Grind half of the roasted garlic into a coarse paste. Only one stir in the blender is enough.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water to the tamarind and make a thick tamarind extract.
  4. Heat the same pan with 50 ml of oil. Add mustard seeds. Once all of them splutter, add a pinch of asafoetida. Add the tamarind extract, allow it to boil on a medium flame until the oil separates.
  5. Now add the roasted garlic+roasted garlic paste to the tamarind gravy boiling in the pan. Give it a nice stir. Add the red chilli powder and required salt. Stir well.
  6. Allow the mixture to boil in low to medium flame for the next 15 minutes while stirring in between.
  7. Once done, turn it off and allow the pickle to cool. Transfer to a air tight jar. Serve it with curd rice and its heavenly :)
  8. Serve it with curd rice and its heavenly!

Hi, Awesome recipe. Can you please share what is the shelf life of this pickle? Do we need to refrigerate it? Thanks.

Don’t refrigerate it it will be good for 6 month to one year. The amount of oil makes the difference. Oil standing on the pickle is good. It must be covered with oil then it will not spoil.
