What a fascinating thing to make. I don't know if I am ambitious enough to go through all the steps, and I don't have a lot of the ingredients. I'd love to have someone make this for me.

should I make the same method for lemon pickle..

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Suja JoelYou can make the same for lemon pickle too, but done fry lemon as we fried garlic. Chop lemon into small pieces and add this masala.
