Velarikaai (Tamil)/ Dosakaya(Telugu) pickle

For all pickle loves of EC:
The days are still cold and the nights are worst. I usually fall sick around this time of the year with the lack of sun light.
Oh how I love this pickle!! I can have it anytime of the day with hot rice and a tsp of ghee...yummy!
Ingredients:
Indian Cucumber: 1
Mustard Powder: 3 tbsp:
Red Chili Powder: 3 tbsp (make it 4 more more spicy pickle)
Salt: 1 to 1/2 tbsp (stop at 1 1/2 tbsp, you can add later if you need more).
Sesame oil (til/nuvvulu/ellu): 4 to 5 tbsp
Method:
  • Wash the cucumber and dry it. There should not be any water residue. Now, cut the cucumber in to half and remove the seeds. Now, chop them in to 1 inch cubes.
  • Mix salt, chili and mustard powder in a separate bowl and add to the cucumber pieces. Mix well. Now add the spice mix to the cucumber pieces and mix well.
  • Slowly add the oil to the cucumber pieces. The mixture should me slightly oily like shown below but not too much.
  • Now, cover the bottle/bowl with a tight lid and leave it aside for about a day.

  • The above picture shows how it is supposed to look like when it is freshly prepared. The first picture is how it looks like after a day when we can enjoy the pickle with hot rice, ghee and parippu (dal without tadka).

Re: Velarikaai (Tamil)/ Dosakaya(Telugu) pickle

No lime Aren't pickles always supposed to be sour? What element in this recipe generates the sourness

No. Not all pickles are sour. We usually add lime to 'preserve' the pickle for long time (if I am not mistaken).

I also made cauliflower pickle. In that I added lime. Will post the recipe sometime soon .
