As monotonous as Indian cuisine can sometimes be, it never fails to amaze us with its food combinations. The lemon pickle checks all boxes of bold, unique, strong, or adventurous food combinations. And as all you know already know; we Indians want some kick in whatever we eat. If the food is not spicy enough, we add in a pickle to suit our taste.
We are notorious for pickling everything in the world. Sometimes, it is our friends when they are being a bit too annoying. Obviously here, by pickling, we mean to be bashing them for their nuisance. Anyway, let’s leave that sort of pickling for another day, let us now speak about the lemon pickle.
While all pickles may sound like the same story, the lemon pickle stands out. It is considered to be a powerful probiotic in all regions of India. It also comes with a list of health benefits which make it an appetizing delight in your everyday meal. Here are few:

- Improves bone health
- Helps in urinary function by dissolving kidney stones
- Keeps hypertension at bay thus improving heart health

At DesiAuthentic, the lemon pickle is made using only selective ingredients that are carefully chosen by our home cooks. Holistic ingredients like rock salt, lemons, hand grounded red chili powder, local cold-pressed oil, turmeric, cumin and other ingredients are added in a recipe that is handed down through generations.

A bit of citrus can take a dish from ‘mm’ to ‘mmmmmmm’ within no time. Precisely, that is also the idea behind the lemon pickle. The pickle is made such that it is packed with ingredients that offer all six tastes as described by Ayurvedic nutrition – sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter & astringent. The lemon pickle is not only about the flavor or taste but also to give the eater a sublime experience of food in its originality.
Our recipe contains the right mix of spices and lemons creating the perfect taste and balanced nutrition in each serving. Your guilt ends here as you can have a serving of lemon pickle everyday without worrying too much. A favorite combination is lemon pickle and freshly roasted aloo parathas taken right off the skillet. You can also have lemon pickle over a bed of hot rice, rotis, dosas and any other staple.
