Pickles and achar are essential part of Indian meals. They have strength to enhance your simplest meals and make them flavorful. Here we have got you a very simple and delicious garlic pickle recipe.

Garlic is often added in small quantities to chutneys and pickles as part of their flavouring, but as in this garlic pickle recipe it can also be the main ingredient of a hot and sweet garlic pickle.

The sweetness is provided by jaggery. The garlic pods can be cooked as in this garlic pickle recipe or matured in the sun. The aroma of garlic is unmistakable and pungent. Oil your hands before you peel garlic to prevent your fingers from getting discoloured and having a lingering garlic aroma throughout the day. Soaking garlic cloves in hot water makes it easier to peel them.

Preparation of lahsun achar doesn't take long but all you need to do is keep it for a week to mature. To make garlic pickle, heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai, add the garlic cloves and turmeric powder and sauté on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till they are soft, while stirring continuously. Add the lemon juice and cook on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the chilli powder, jaggery and salt and cook on a slow flame for another 2 to 3 minutes or till the jaggery has dissolved, while stirring occasionally. Add the masala powder, mix well and cook for another minute. Remove from the flame, cool and store garlic pickle in a sterilized glass jar in a cool dry place.

This garlic pickle is ready for the table after 1 week. Use mustard oil if you wish to as mustard oil provides a beautiful aroma and pungent flavor but, if you don’t like that flavor make use of sesame oil or regular vegetable oil. Ensure there is no larvae, mold or fungi in the garlic cloves or else they will rot while pickling and spoil the garlic pickle. Slice off any overly large piece before adding to the pan. Lemon juice can be swapped with vinegar. The acid basically helps in increasing the shelf life of garlic pickle.

You can serve Punjabi lahsun achar immediately or choose to preserve it for a week and then eat as pickle tastes better the longer it preserves. After storing the garlic pickle in a glass jar, stir it with a clean and dry spoon once a day. This would ensure that all the spices are mixed evenly in the pickle and do not settle at the bottom of the jar

This lahsun achar is ready to serve after about a week and it stays well for upto 3 months. I have made a small quantity of this lahsun achar but you can multiply the quantities to make more if you like. Storage upto 3 months: In a cool dry place.
