- Wash the lemons thoroughly. Wipe them dry using a dry kitchen towel.
- Cut 4 lemons into 2 halves each. Squeeze out the juice of the lemons. Separately keep aside the lemon juice and lemon skins.
- Cut 4 slits on each of the remaining lemons. Place all the lemons and lemon skins in a sterilised glass jar.
- Combine the lemon juice, salt, turmeric powder, green chillies, ginger and ground red chillies and mix well.
- Pour this mixture over the lemons. Press down the lemons in the jar with a spoon so that the lemon juice covers the lemons.
- Cover with a lid and keep in the sun for 8 to 10 days or until the lemons are soft and their skins give way under the pressure of your thumb. Toss the ingredients in the jar occasionally.
