For Prawn Pickle you will need:
1 cup prawn (cleaned)
2 tbsp ginger (grated)
3 tbsp garlic (grated)
5-6 tbsp lemon juice
10 tbsp pickle masala (achaar masala)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp hing
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp mustard seeds (raai)
1/2 cup oil (for preserving the pickle)
Firstly wash, clean and pat dry the prawns. Then, marinate it for a while with little salt, lime juice, ginger, garlic (don't use all of it).
Now, in a kadhai take about 2 tbsp oil, put mustard seeds, chillies, hing, turmeric powder and the marinated prawns. Saute it nicely until all the juices in the prawn dry out.
Then let it cool down and add achaar masala and all the remaining ginger, garlic, salt to it and mix well. Keep this mixture in an air-tight bottle.
Meanwhile, take the oil and add remaining mustard seeds, hing and let this tadka cool down completely.
Once the prepared tadka has cooled down completely add it to the prawn mixture in the bottle.
This pickle can be preserved in an air-tight bottle/jar, in refrigerator for 20-25 days!
Enjoy this yummy pickle with puris, chapati, rice .. Anything...
my take: serve it as a dip with trotillas or french fries
