Ingredients to make Ginger Pickle

  • 5 inch piece of ginger
  • 1/2 tablespoon of salt
  • 1/2 lemon juice

How to make Ginger Pickle

  1. Thoroughly wash and clean the ginger root and thinly peel the skin. Slice it horizontally and then vertically giving you long and thin strands of ginger.
  2. Place the ginger pieces in a bowl. Add salt and lemon juice. Mix it well and keep aside. Allow the ginger to absorb flavours from the salt and lemon juice. The longer it sits, the better the flavour is.
  3. Usually 3-4 hours is a good time for the ginger to become flavourful. Serve it with chapati or eat straight off the bowl.

My Tip:

You can add green chillies to it as well. It stores well for a few weeks in the refrigerator. If the ginger is fresh, then the ginger turns pinkish upon pickling. Also the addition of salt, brings out the pink colour better.
