Lemon pickle is one of the best pickles ever produced. Its hotness and sharpness complements most Indian recipes. This simple recipe is devised for all those who love lemon pickles, but do not have the patience to wait till the pickle matures in the sun. It is quick, completely oil-free and absolutely traditional in taste. Pressure cooked lemons combined with salt, chilli and asafoetida make this spicy lemon pickle. Pressure cook the lemons till they are soft and the skin gives way under the pressure of your thumb. Store it refrigerated for upto one week.
