NOTES

There are 5 things to be kept in mind.
  1. DO NOT transfer the hot pickle into the storage container. Keep it in the same pan in which it was made for 2-3 hours. Let it cool down and then transfer to another container.
  2. Since we are using Vinegar, DO NOT use Iron or Aluminium vessels for making or storing the Veluthulli Achar.
  3. Store it in a dry container. If possible, try to store in a sun-dried container. Even slight moisture in the container damages the Garlic pickle.
  4. DONOT use wet spoon to take the pickle. Always use a dry spoon for handling it.
  5. To increase the shelf-life, refrigerate the Veluthulli Achar Store it in a glass jar or earthenware for 2-3 days; let it set and then refrigerate it from the next day onwards.

According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me the passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.
