Fresh Green Pepper Corn Pickle
This is one from my drafts that I have been having from my visit to India. Have you every tasted pickle with green fresh pepper corn, if not then don't miss. Try it out when you get them. They are just too good. I had the chance on my visit and tried it with the fresh pepper corns that I could get. One of my neighbour aunty(a close family friend who is more like a sister to my mom) got it for us from her native in Kerala on request from my mom. Though it was not fully grown, I did not mind a bit for trying the pickle. These peppers are picked before they are ripe.
Can make it just the way you do any pickles and enjoy with any rice variety especially curd rice. Is even good for health.
