Pickles generally have high salt content and therefore not advisable for those with high blood pressure. Here is a pickle that is strikingly out of the ordinary. The garlic and tendli pickle, you will be happily surprised to note, has just half a spoon of salt! in this case, garlic is the wonder ingredient. It not only enhances the flavour and aroma of tendli, it also acts as a salt substitute and helps lower blood pressure. Chop the garlic very finely to highlight its sharp flavour.
