Turshi Limo (Lemon pickle)

  • Yield : two 450 g jars
  • Prep Time : 24:0 h
  • Cook Time : 10m
  • Ready In : 24:10 h


  • 450 g lemons or limes
  • ½tbs sia dona (nigella seeds) (optional)
  • ½tbs fenugreek
  • ½tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp crushed chillies (optional)


Step 1

Cut the lemons in half, squeeze out and reserve the juice.

Step 2

Scoop out the insides and, if the lemons are large, cut the halves into two.

Step 3

Put them into salted water for 24 hours, then boil as many times as necessary in fresh, clean water to remove all bitterness and make them soft.

Step 4

Drain, then boil them again in the lemon juice for a couple of minutes.

Step 5

Add the rest of the ingredients, leave to cool, then place in clean, dry jars and screw on the lids ready to store.

Step 6

The lemon peels should always be covered by lemon juice in the jars, so add extra lemon juice if required.
