This is a tangy spicy pickle and very easy to make too.I made this with raw green
tomatoes .You could try the same recipe with red tomatoes .Green tomatoes can be
used in fries,chutneys,cooked with dal,made into juices..and many more you could try.
This time i tried in a pickle recipe.
Health peek into the benefits ….recent research has proved that green tomatoes contain
an alkaloid called tomatine which effectively fight cancer cells.Green tomatoes are also
rich in Vitamin C and supplies good nutrients.
Moving on to the recipe now,…This pickle is a good combination with rice,preferably
with variety rices like curd,lemon,tomato…….Some like it with chappathis too.
So do try to keep tangy pickles at hand,and send in your comments and suggestions.
