Lime, Garlic & Chilli Pickle

This recipe was given to be through my aunt (Sr. Frances). I tweaked the recipe after making a small batch. This pickle is sour, spicy and pungent. The best part is that you can adjust any of these flavour profiles by adding more/less of the relevant ingredients.

Badi Amma’s Bharvaan Laal Mirchi Ka Achaar (Stuffed Red Chilli Pickle)

Badi Amma is my friend’s grandma who makes amazing food. While her dishes are absolutely yummm, her personality is larger-than-ilfe.
 
This pickle is one of her most popular recipes and I would wait for a bottle of these stuffed chillies whenever anyone would come from Badi Amma’s home.

Prawn Balchão (Goan Spicy Prawn Pickle)

Everyone knows Prawn Balchão as a main course. It is actually more like a pickle! In the days prior to refrigeration, prawns (and sometimes pork) would be left to marinate in a vinegar-based sweet and sour tomato-chilli sauce. Here, the Balchão would be left for days to marinate without reheating.

Prawn Balchao (Goan Spicy Prawn Pickle)

Balchao is a spicy seafood pickle from Goa. BalchaoWhile prawns are used most of the times, it is not uncommon to use other seafood like mussels, clams, lobster, seer fish, tuna and mackerel; amongst others.
 
Most people believe that the Balchao is extremely fiery. While this is true when it is tasted on the day f preparation; Balchao is a pickle and should be left for atleast a day before eating. An ideal time for resting would be a week. During this period, the marinade soaks into the seafood and the vinegar mellow the spice to a level which makes this dish very desireable.
