Cabbage Pickle

We get into the second week of this edition of the 14 day blogging marathon. This week I shall post recipes which fall into 6 different categories as outlined by Srivalli. 

For the today's post, I shall post under the category - 'Chutneys and Podis'. 

This version of Cabbage pickle is from my mom. In my mom's place, chutneys and pickles are a regular fare and so my mom makes chutneys out of anything and everything :). 

After I came to the US, I tried making this pickle and somehow felt that the cabbage smell was over powering and  stopped making this pickle. Of late, I have begun making this pickle and are we are thoroughly enjoying it. S says that the overpowering 'cabbagey' smell was the result of my overactive nose in those days :).

Here it is for Day 1 of BM #16.

Ingredients - 

Cabbage finely chopped 2 cups
Mirchi powder - 2 tsp (or as per taste)
Salt - 2 tsp (or as per taste)
Fenugreek powder (roasted methi powder) - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Asofoetida (Hing) - 1/4 tsp 

Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Dry Red Chillies 1-2, Asafoetida a pinch)
Lemon Juice as per taste

Cabbage Pickle

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add salt and turmeric to the finely chopped cabbage.

Also add mirchi powder, methi powder, oil and asafoetida and mix well.

Squeeze in the lemon juice and set aside for an hour or so. 

Serve the chutney with steaming hot rice and ghee for a satisfying meal.

It stays fresh on the counter for a couple of days and upto a week in the refrigerator.
