Water pickles are a specialty of my family. My mother was known to make some astounding varieties of water based pickles. I have inherited only a few of them of which this one is my personal favourite. This pickle takes about a week to mature and can then be eaten for the next 4 to 5 weeks. It gets very sour as time passes, so you may need to add some sugar to it. One way to slow its deterioration is to refrigerate it after it has matured. Both the vegetable and the juice can be consumed. Have with Paratha, Missi Roti, Lachha Paratha, Butter Naan.
