A very different and unusual pickle from the kitchens of South India, the Drumstick Pickle is perfectly spiced and 100% sure to tickle your taste buds.

Sautéed drumstick pieces are allowed to marinate in a tangy and spicy base that includes tamarind pulp, asafoetida and a freshly-ground masala powder that lends the pickle strong hints of fenugreek and mustard.

As the pickle marinates for a day or two, you will find that the drumstick mingles well with the spices to give you a really exhilarating pickle.

If you believe that the right accompaniments make your meal complete, try your hand at other delicious ones like the Quick Carrot and Capsicum Pickle and the Spicy Lemon Pickle .
