Garlic Pickle

Lahsun Ka Achaar

Garlic pickle is a tasty but easy pickle to make. The recipe I have used here can be used to pickle many different vegetables. All amounts are approximates. I sometimes use single clove garlic or Elephant garlic to make this pickle, simply slicing each garlic into ‘clove’ sizes. Makes standard pickle jar.


  • 1 1/2 cups garlic cloves, peeled

  • 1/2 cup mustard oil

  • 1 tbsp. Panch-Pooran

  • 1 1/2 to 2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp. chilli powder

  • 1/4 cup malt vinegar


  1. Heat oil in a pan. Allow to smoke and then take off the heat, until it stops smoking.

  2. Add panch-pooran mix. When the seeds crackle, add turmeric, salt and chilli powder. Stir for half a minute and add garlic cloves.

  3. Stir to mix and turn heat off.

  4. Add vinegar. When cool enough, put in a sterilized jar, close the lid and leave on a window sill or in the sun for 3-4 days.

  5. Enjoy!
