This is one of my favorites. I remember my mom used to make this when I was a kid. Me and my elder brother would add this pickle in a glass of buttermilk and have. This pickle tastes best with curd rice, dosa, idli, appam, etc..

Its very easy to make and does not take much time too. Store in a proper container and keep it refrigerated. Since its homemade and does not contain any preservative, its better to make small quantities.
