This is a very common pickle made in andhra.Hot,sour and tangy.This goes well with idly,dosa and even when smeared on a slice of bread-it's heavenly.
The ingredients are very simple and easily available at home.So I decided to make it this afternoon.It was all done in about 15mins flat.


Ginger pieces-1cup
Grated Jaggery-1cup
Tamarind pulp-1/2cup
Corriander seeds-1tbsp
Dry red chillies-10
mustard seeds-1/2tsp
Urad dal-1tsp
Crushed Garlic -10cloves
Curry leaves-1string

Heat 1tsp oil in a pan.
Add methi seeds,corriander seeds and the red chillies and roast till a nice aroma arises.
Grind this to a fine powder.
Add ginger,tamarind pulp,jaggery,salt and the ground powder and grind to a fine paste.
In a pan heat 4tbsp oil.Add garlic,urad dal,mustard seeds an curry leaves and roast.
Switch off the stove and add the ground paste to this tempering and mix well.
Cool and store in a glass container.
