Date Pickle

date pickle
This pickle made with a date base is served with rice dishes such as biryani. It has a sweet and spicy flavour.

Pickle base
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 tsp chillie powder
1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
1/2 tsp salt to taste
1/2 cup vinegar or more as needed to grind
1/4 cup sugar to taste
2 to 3 cloves of garlic
5 whole cardamom
5 cloves
1 tbsp lemon juice

Vegetables
1/2 cup of shallots
1 to 2 carrots cut into sticks
capsicums
a few whole pitted dates

Grind all the ingredients in a grinder until the mixture is thick and smooth.

I usually use a clay pot when making this pickle. Heat the pan on low to medium heat and cook this mixture for about 5 to 10 minutes stirring until the mixture changes colour to dark brown.

Add shallots or red onion, carrots, capsicum, a few whole dates to this mixture and let it cool. Once it is cool put it in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid and store it in the fridge. This mixture will last for about six months.
