Irumban Puli (Bilimbi) Pickle
Instructions
  1. Wash the irumban puli (bilimbi) in running water, and dry with a cloth.

  2. Slice them lengthwise into four pieces, season with salt, mix well and lay them on a plate overnight. Next day, keep the plate in sunlight. You'll notice the colour of the puli changing to light green/yellow. The salt and the heat from the sunlight will start to dry the puli. Leave it overnight.
  3. Next day, roast the fenugreek seeds and the ural dal in a pan. When they start to turn burn, turn off the flame and allow it to cool, and grind them to a fine texture.
  4. Heat gingelly oil in a pan, and splutter some mustard seeds. Lower the flame, add the powdered mixture, chili powder, turmeric powder and asafoetida. Slowly stir for a minute and turn off the flame. Add curry leaves and the irumban puli, and mix well until they get a good coat of the masala mix. Leave it to for sometime.
  5. Once the pickle is cooled down, transfer it to a clean, dry bottle. Drizzle the pickle with some more gingelly oil on the top, and keep the bottle in the fridge. You can start using the pickle after 3-4 days.
