The cuisine in India is as vast and wide ranging as its multi ethnic culture. The delicious and the exotic dishes of India are marked by the subtle uses of spices and herbs. Indian cuisines vary widely from region to region. But the common factor that combines every meal in every household is that bottle of pickle tucked away in the kitchen cupboard or refrigerator. No meal is complete without that chatpata or spicy pickle to go along with Dal-Chawal or Puri-Bhajji.
Come March, it is common to see terraces of households across India covered in cut fruits and vegetables laid out on clean cotton bed sheets, left out to drying under the sun. It’s pickling season and everything from limes, chillies, carrots and especially mangoes, is prepared to be doused in spice mixes and preserved in oil and salt.
