Kachche Haldi Ka Achar (raw Turmeric Pickle)
My guide and friend who happens to be a Gujarati introduced me to this pickle during a lunch at her place. I was fascinated with the colour at first and the information that raw turmeric could be pickled. My friend told me since turmeric had a healing property having it intrinsically cleansed one's body. The taste was quite strong for me, but then I went ahead and made myself a small bottle to give it a try. I believe you get accustomed to a flavor if you have it over a long period. I am getting accustomed to raw turmeric and this is the easiest pickle ever.
