Fresh Turmeric Pickle also called as Kachi Haldi ka Achar is quite popular in Gujarat , India. Making this pickle is quite easy as compared to making any other Indian Pickles. This is not a authentic Gujarati ,Kachi Haldi ka Achar but it’s similar . This Haldi Pickle is delicious with blending flavours of ginger roots and lime Juice. Fresh Turmeric Roots ,Ginger roots are cut into juliennes , mixed with lime juice , mustard oil ,salt and chilli powder.

One of my cook book says , Authentic Gujarati Turmeric pickle is made with only turmeric roots, lime juice and salt. I adapted this recipe from Nisha Madhulika’s Video and made changes to suit my taste. I must say , it’s worth making this simple, easy pickle at home and stock up. As summer is about to start my lunch will be having curd rice and I’ll be pairing it with this pickle , Yum. Literally, I’m salivating right now šŸ™‚ . When it’s summer , I end up my lunch always with some curd rice and pickle to have a good gut health.

Fresh Turmeric Medicinal Properties: Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. It also helps in reducing the symptoms of Arthritis and Depression. And most common and known home remedy to fight flu , cough and cold. But Unfortunately , Curcumin is poorly absorbed by the body . Consuming black pepper , which contains piperine, a natural substance along with Turmeric enhances the absorption of curcumin . Also curcumin is fat soluble, so making a pickle with some oil is a good idea . Hence I’m here with a pickle recipe which has oil in it .
