Here is a peppy garlic pickle that is sure to shake awake your taste buds! In this Lehsun ka Achaar, the garlic cloves are flavoured with chilli powder and a special masala, made of four aromatic seeds and asafoetida.
This masala must be ground coarsely, in order to get the correct mouth-feel. Lemon juice adds a tangy dimension to this pickle, while jaggery imparts a mild sweetness, which helps to highlight the spicy notes of the special masala. Allow this pickle to cure for a week before serving.
Serve this achaar as an accompaniment to pep up the main course or simply enjoy with your favourite rotis / puris / parathas .
