Garlic is often added in small quantities to chutneys and pickles as part of their flavouring, but as in this recipe, it can also be the main ingredient of a hot and sweet garlic pickle. The sweetness is provided by jaggery. The garlic pods can be cooked as in this recipe or matured in the sun. The aroma of garlic is unmistakable and pungent. Oil your hands before you peel garlic to prevent your fingers from getting discoloured and having a lingering garlic aroma throughout the day. Soaking garlic cloves in hot water makes it easier to peel them. This pickle is ready to serve after about a week and it stays well for upto 3 months. I have made a small quantity of this recipe, but you can multiply the quantities to make more if you like. Storage upto 3 months: In a cool dry place.
