Garlic Pickle - Just For You Hubby Dear....

This post seems very apt for Alka's event Just for you ...Let me tell you why....
Some time back I got wayyy to much garlic from the market without realising I had a reasonable quantity at home.Since Hubby dear loves pickles,I asked him if he would like to taste homemade garlic pickle.His face lit up and he said'Definately'..So here comes the garlic pickle for hubby dear which goes all the way to Alka's maiden event....

You need:

Turmeric powder-a pinch
Fenugreek seeds-1 teaspoon
Mustard-1/2 a teaspoon+1 teaspoon
Asafoetida powder-a pinch
Chilli powder-2 tablespoons [Adjust to taste]

Salt to taste

1.Smash garlic roughly.

2.Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan and saute garlic on low flame.

3.When the garlic is slightly soft,put in the tamarind extract and turmeric and simmer till the garlic is cooked.It took 15 minutes for me.Remove from fire and keep aside.
