Chilly Ginger pickle is a zero oil pickle. It has just chillies, ginger , lemon and salt.
It is a pickle which has an amazing flavor and is enjoyed with Cholas, Daals. The ginger turns pink after salt and lemon juice are added. The pickle needs to mature for a couple of days, but trust me the lemon juice instantly gets both the flavors of chilly as well as ginger right on day one. I have to hide the pickle so that nobody finishes the juice before its mature.
After the pickle has matured ( let me tell you while writing this my mouth is watering ) the juice still gets over the fastest, as everyone loves to add it over Daals and Cholas. I love to make this pickle with spicy green chillies, but you can use any you feel like. The recipe is super super simple and the outcome super super delicious.
