NOTES:

  • If possible don’t make this pickle in a big batch as it become soft after some time .so I prefer to make small batches of this pickle as it is available easily during winters.
  • The pickle change the color after some times and turns slightly greenish due to oxidation but is fine to consume .
  • You can use ready made achar masala too.
