Red Pepper Pickle

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables, Indian

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • Small onion - see below
  • 1/2 Lemon, juice of -OR-
  • 1 tb Bottled lemon juice
  • 2 ts Cumin seed
  • Fresh-ground black pepper


NOTES: This is served in small quantities (about 2 tablespoons per person)
as a crisp contrast to tender vegetables and creamy dhals.

ABBREVIATIONS: ts = teaspoon
tb = tablespoon

Cut the red pepper in half; deseed and remove all white membrane. Slice as
thinly as the sharpness of your knife will allow :-) then cut the longer
slices in half. Keep in mind always the way this will look when you serve
it. Make it possible to pick them up in a tablespoon.

Put the pepper slices in a non-metal bowl (if you use a metal one the lemon
juice will react with it and the pickle will have a metallic taste).

Cut the top end off the onion then shave off very thin slices. Really the
sharper your knife the better. Make them wafer-thin and if you can't
consider sharpening your knife. Separate the rings. Mix them in with the
pepper slices - use your own judgement as to how much onion you want. I use
1/8 small onion to a medium red bell pepper but that's just me.

Add the lemon juice, grind over black pepper to taste and mix in the cumin

Now cover the bowl and leave for at least an hour, NOT in the fridge but
even possibly in the sun, stirring once or twice.
Sorry can't remember where this recipe came from. Possibly same place as
the potato chops. It is certainly not by me though I wish it was...
