Drumstick Pickle
Ingredients
Drumsticks -2
( Wash ,wipe & cut them into 1" pieces)
Mustard-3tsp
Methi -1 tsp
Red chilly powder -3 tsp heaped
Salt - 1 & 1/2 tsp
Tamarind - a large lemon size ball
Sesame oil -3/4 cup
Tempering
Mustard - 1tsp
Hing-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves -2 springs
Method
Dry grind mustard & methi to a coarse powder,keep it aside.Do not dry roast.
Soak tamarind in warm water for 10 minutes & extract the pulp from the tamarind.
Cook the pulp till it reduces & you get a thick paste.
Heat oil in a pan in medium high flame deep fry the cut drumsticks till colour changes & its cooked inside.Remove & let it cool
In the same oil temper it with above ingredients.Cool the tempering
Now take a wide bowl mix the chilly powder,salt & mustard methi powder.Add the fried drumstick & gently mix them .Do not break the pieces.
Add the cooled tamarind paste & the cooled tempering.
Mix them well till everything is well combined.
Cover it with a lid & leave at room temperature for 24 hours.
Next day mix gently,cover & keep it for one more day.
3rd day mix & store it in a clean glass jar.
No need to add any preservatives.Try to keep a layer of oil on top of the pickle always.
I usually keep all the pickles in fridge.
Enjoy it with hot rice!
Note:
If you are going to keep the pickle outside then make sure there is no water at all in the pickle.Otherwise your pickle will go bad.
If making in small quantity i prefer to keep it in fridge.
For extra flavour garlic can be added.

Thanks for visiting !
