Sookhe hue Nimbu ka Aachar/ Dry lemon pickle

So most of the Pickles in India are made with loads of Mustard oil or any other oil that is recommended for the recipe, but this one is dry and has a bunch of spices, and the people who are health-conscious or the people who are gym freaks can definitely hog on this one.

My recommendation try it with khasta kachori or mathri but it can go well with any parantha or puri as well.

The key ingredients you require are patience and commitment and rest everything you can get from the market or online.

  1. Nimbu/Lemon - 1kg

  2. Sabot saunf/ Fennel seeds - 50 grams

  3. Sabot dhaniya/coriander seeds - 50 grams

  4. Sabot Zeera/ cumin seeds - 50 grams

  5. Methi daana/Fenugreek Seeds - 50 grams

  6. Haldi powder/ turmeric powder - 2 teaspoons

  7. Mirchi Powder/ Red Chilli Powder - 50 grams

  8. Kali Mirch/Black Pepper- 50 grams

  9. Kala Namak+namak/Himalayan black salt+salt- as per taste


  1. Slice the lemons into small pieces as you desire and dry them under the sunlight for a couple of days till all the water content is dried out.

  2. After the water content is dried out take a glass jar and add all the ingredients and mix well make sure you mix it homogeneously so that the flavor is infused evenly and keep it in a cool and dry place for a couple of days.
