Let’s see how to make tindora pickle / Dondaka Niluva Pachadi – with perfect measurements


This pickle could be used for upto 1 month. If put in fridge, this could be used for upto  2-3 months

Here I took 1/2 kg tindora

Wash these tindora and pat them dry

Cut off the ends and slice them into 4 long pieces.

Then, cut them again into pieces of desired size

Don’t make the pieces too small

Put the tindora pieces into a bowl and add 15-20 garlic cloves along with 5 teaspoons chilli powder, 4 teaspoons salt, 3 teaspoons mustard seeds powder (powder the small mustard seeds for this), cumin-fenugreek seeds powder (powder 1 teaspoon cumin seeds and 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds), tamarind paste (paste of 50-60 grams tamarind) or 3 tablespoons lemon juice instead of tamarind and mix

Let’s prepare tempering now

Heat 3-4 tablespoons oil in pan

Then Add 1 teaspoon dried chilli seeds, 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, 2 teaspoons bengal gram and fry till they change colour

Add dried chillies and fry till it changes colour

Cut off the stove and let it cool down completely

Then, add this tempering to the prepared tindoras and mix

Then Add the tempering to the tindoras only once it is completely cooled or else the pickle will spoil quickly

Store it in a glass jar and let it sit for 2 days

Taste it after 2 days and here you could add more salt or chilli powder if desired
