We all can agree to the fact that most of us love eating achar. Whether it is with your parathas or with simple dal chawal- pickles are the one thing that you can pair with most foods. Ranging from mild to super spicy, you can find all kinds of pickles, depending on the culture and state. In many of our families, we have our own recipes for making pickles passed on from generations and some of us might just buy a bottle from the nearest grocery store. In one way or another, a bottle of pickle is always present at our homes.
While we enjoy eating this with most of our foods, we always struggle to eat the leftover masala when the pickle jar is finishing. Although that masala is yummy, eating it directly could harm your throat. To make use of the leftover pickle masala in your jar, nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar has the perfect solution!
A trick passed on by Rujuta Diwekar's family will help you to make use of that leftover pickle. All you need to do is put small white onions in the leftover pickle masala and brew them under the sun for a few days. And your new way to use the leftover pickle will be ready in no time!
Take a look at Rujuta Diwekar's post:
As this is one way to use the pickle masala, we bring you some other recipes where you can use the masala stuck at the bottom of your jar.
