Mixed Vegetable Pickle

Scrumptious, Delicious, Awesome and Mouth Watering is the way to describe this very authentic tasting mixed vegetable pickle!!The aromatic fresh spice powders used in this recipe enhances the flavour, texture and taste of the pickle. The combination of vegetables used in this pickle makes it colourful, very appetising, pleasing and tempting to the eye!! If stored in a cool dry place or in the fridge, the pickle would last for a week to 10 days, but i doubt there’ll be any left after that long!

Well, this recipe, which I am very proud to proclaim is my dear hubby’s own recipe!!!

A family favourite not conformed to just our household but appreciated by close family and friends who make a beeline for this pickle!!  My hubby is not only a critic of my food and as you can see contributes to the kitchen with a few of his exotic dishes as well!!!
