But then I stopped making it for some unknown reason though I still love lemon pickle or nimboo ka achar after all it's so difficult to say no to this tangy, spicy and tongue tickling pickle, I wouldn't say who can say no to this pickle cause personally I know few you do say no to lemon pickle.


Anyways so this pickle is my MIL recipe and she made it, these are home grown lemons got plenty of lemon this year that already 3 batches of pickles has made.  In this batch tender and young lemons were used so you can see in step wise pictures it looks green in color don't think that as lime it's lemon :)
