Healthy and easy to make garlic pickle
Garlic is a wonderful seasoning to add a nice aroma in curries especially in Indian cuisine. We used to add garlic in almost all the curries. It is a very healthy and aromatic root vegetable. Garlic pickle is my family’s favorite. We can make garlic pickle in many varieties like sweet and sour pickles, sun-dried garlic pickles, dates and garlic pickles etc… Here I would like to share the simple garlic pickle recipe. I steamed the garlic before making pickles. You can add as such also. If you are not steaming garlic, the pickle will be crunchy and we need to keep the pickle for some days before use.
