Instant Mixed Vegetable and Garlic Pickle

Pickles are an all time favorite at my place. Being abroad I am unable to make pickles in the traditional way. It is always my mom and mom in law who make awesome yummy pickles in their own distinctive style and send it to me. My lunch and dinner is incomplete without pickles.

As my stock of pickles are over and my next trip to india is not so soon, I thought why not give it a shot here. To start with I made small quantities and yes I can now say that I have nailed this no fail recipe. My family just loves it and now this is a regular on my to do list.

Now I am experimenting with various combinations. I will share it with you all as and when I make it next time.
