This is super easy to make, but it does require some planning ahead since the lemons take 6 months to pickle,” she posted. In the next few lines, she also added a few lines about how one can enjoy the pickle.

“Lemon pickle (also called achar or oorga) is delicious with just about anything. You can use it as a relish for meats or sandwiches and can even fling a dollop into the pan while making home fries or sautéing vegetables. But my favorite way to enjoy it is with a big bowl of thayir sadam (yogurt rice),” she added. She also posted a detailed recipe in the rest of the caption.

Padma Lakshmi in the video first shows the lemon pieces that she shared she have been marinating in sea salt for over six months. The she introduces all the spices she is going to use and how. The rest of the video showcases her making the pickle.
