BM # 20   Day 3

 For the third day of this marathon I wanted to cook something with a different variety of onions, but somehow my love for baby onions and this particular pickle, made me post this. A meal without onions is kind of incomplete, specially a north Indian meal.This is a pickle  which is oil free and can be enjoyed with any meal.The tangy water too has a terrific taste and we  pour this over the rice, specially the methi rice , but it tastes equally delicious with plain white steamed rice.

250gms…. baby onions (you could use the big ones, cut them into quarter)
4tsp……….. mustard, pwd
2tsp……….. red chilly pwd
½ tsp……… turmeric pwd
Salt to taste
Peel the onions, give them a boil in water.
Place these in a jar.
Add spices, including  salt.
Mix well.
Add water to cover the onions.
Close the lid and shake the jar.
This shall take about 3-4 days to get ready, depending on the weather conditions.

Make share you shake the jar at  least 2-3 times in a day.

  1. so simple yet nice…

    Onions (n only onions) are so often a salad in my family's every day food with a dash of lemon and salt. This one will surely be a Winner!

    BTW, what is the shelf life of this pickle and do we need to refrigerate it?
