and last but not the least Manisha’s Ever famous Lemon pickle without oil which has been in my pantry for few months now. I have added carrots, green chillies, ginger and bittergourd after 2 days of resting and which turns out the best mixed vegetable pickle for us.

  4. Nupur says:

    Ooh, that is a nice idea to convert the lemon pickle into a mixed veg pickle. So you made the lemon pickle, and two days later, added other cut veggies and mixed it all up? Is that right? Thanks so much, I am going to try this delicious variation.

    Thanks Nupur!,Yes thats right! yes for me i never changed much of the recipe as such! yeah try it!

  5. Asha says:

    OH! Roopa,bayalli neeroorta ideyamma!! Bettada Nellikai nodi tumba dinavaytu! I love the nellikai pickle.I should move to Singapore!!:D

    Hi Roopa, pickles looks mouth watering. Great Entry for MBP. Great idea to change the lemon pickle into mixed veg pickle. I have a doubt….if you add the veggies…is it possible for preservation? clear for me….thanks dear..have a great weekend.

    Jyothi i bottled this for more than 4 months now! i have not added any oil so you can go ahead and try it yourself. make sure to use more lemon juice!

  7. Coffee says:

    My goodness roopa…. I don’t know about Asha… but I am for sure coming over to your place for lunch! 🙂 That Amla pickle is worth a try… I just got fresh amlas from serangoon last week…. I have a few left so can give it a try… Thanks for the lovely entries! All are so amazing! 🙂

    Thanks everything came along, amala and mbp he he 🙂 come on i coffee, so you also happen to get the amalas thats great we made it in time right 🙂 Do try them, i would want to learn what other recipes you make from amala….

    ooh! looks so yummy! I have never had gooseberry pickle, must be tasting really heavenly .

    The smell of the masala and the gooseberry was just mouth watering as i was making them. i am just waiting for it to process 🙂

  9. Richa says:

    wow! aren’t you the pickle fan 🙂 u r lucky to get fresh amla there, love to eat fresh amla with salt 🙂
    good entries for mbp!

    ha ha you are right 🙂 just in time the amalas yummy 🙂 we ate a few too !

  10. Hima says:

    Being an andhraite I dont have to mention that I am fond of pickles. I am a great fan of Amla pickle. Will have to make it here if I get them.

    oh yeah i love the andra pickles but i can’t eat very spicy ones, i still remember the mangai pickle has a different taste than the other pickles. do try if you get amalas…

  11. Manisha says:

    Roopa, fantastic idea to turn it into a mixed veggie pickle! What was the reason for adding the veggies 2 days later and not at the same time as mixing the pickle together? Or do you mean the pickle was ready and then you added the veggies. I am making more pickle this weekend – I gave all of this year’s bounty away but I found one small jar’s worth of lime pickle vintage 2006 to tide us over. Now I want to try the variations that all of you have come up with or recipes that were dug out from other family vaults, like that of ISG.

    Manisha i should thank you a ton’s for this method. i have one last bottle left. Adding veges after two days or even after a week to make the veges and lemon have the same softness equally and also by then the spices would have been readily blend. i guess you could add even on the same day :). i have to check what is ISG’s version too!

  12. sia says:

    grrrr… girl, why oh why u doing this to me 😦 all 3 pickles look soooooooooooooooooo goooooooooooooooood 🙂 i just bought dozen limes to make manisha’s pickle. hope we get some sunshine very soon:)

    he he 🙂 thanks dear. well i never used much of sunlight just the warmth and weather in Singapore helped the pickle. hope the weather improves soon for you too….

  13. Manisha says:

    Thanks, Roopa!

    You are most welcome Manisha!

    Did you add the veggies to Manisha’s Lime Pickle ? So its the same recipe but only with some more veggies ? That seems to be a neat idea

    Yes Sandeepa it is the same recipe no change just add the spicyness accordingly for the veges!
