Hello friends. Today I’ll be making a special pickle from a very special ingredient, strawberries. This is a recipe I cooked up in my mind after seeing lots of ripe strawberries in my kitchen. I have made another recipe from these, strawberry chutney but I wanted to utilize all of them. So this idea came to my mind to mix raisins in them and bang, came out this tasty, successful recipe. It can be best had with stuffed paranthas, pooris, tandoori rotis. I really loved this accidental recipe and I surely think you too will. So the recipe is as follows:—-
- Strawberry-250 gms
- Raisins-A handful
- Black and White Salt-According to taste
- Black Mustard Powder-1 tbsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
- Pickle Masala-1 tsp
- Roasted and Powdered Cumin-1/2 tsp
- White Vinegar-2 tbsp
For the tempering or tadka:-
- Five Spice-1 tsp
- Asafoetida- A pinch
- Fortune Vegetable Oil-1 tbsp
Wash, cut and dry the strawberries into medium-sized pieces.
Take a wok. Add oil, five spice, and asafoetida to it. When it browns add the strawberries and raisins and stir for one minute.
Now add all the remaining ingredients, both the salts, black mustard powder, red chilly powder, pickle masala and roasted cumin powder and then switch the gas off. Next, add some vinegar to it.
Store the pickle in a jar and use it from the next day of making. The proportion of the masalas must be adequate in the pickle.
Our Pickled Strawberries are ready.
