It's Fun to Have Pickle With Any Meal!

Pickle is a spicy, salty, and tangy accompaniment that is served alongside many Indian meals and snacks. Having a mouthwatering pickle with any food is a treat.

There are many ways to make pickle. You can store tender mango pickle at room temperature for up to two to three years. The process of making such a long-lasting pickle is a bit lengthy, but it is definitely worthwhile. This type of pickle retains its flavor and texture for a very long time, even though it may become slightly become darker after one or two years.

Making an instant version of pickle, on the other hand, is quick and easy to do. The ingredients used in an instant recipe are different, and the shelf life is shorter. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to one month.

You need only a few ingredients to make an instant mixed vegetable pickle. I made a batch in about 10 minutes. Let me now share the detailed recipe.
