Puli Inji - Ginger pickle

This is another pickle which we can make using ginger. This inji puli and pulikachal are different from each other. The main ingredients are as follows...

  1. Ginger - 5 tbsp (Chopped evenly)
  2. Tamarind(raw) - 2 tbsp
  3. Green chillies - 1 or 2
  4. Jaggery - 1 tbsp
  5. Salt to taste
First take the raw tamarind (its better to use raw tamarind instead of tamarind paste), green chillies, jaggery and salt and grind into a fine paste. Do not add water while grinding. Now we can follow two ways of making this inji-puli. One is just mix the chopped ginger to the above paste and mix it well. Let it soak for a day. We can start using this as a pickle from the next day.

Other method is, take a pan, preheat a teaspoon of sesame oil, add mustard seeds when it splutters add the grinded paste to it with half cup of water and let it boil for 5 to 7 mts. Turn off the stove and put the ginger pieces on top of it and mix it well. Let it soak in the tamarind paste overnight and can be used the next day.
The above said quantity can be used for a week.
