how to make a bamboo shoot pickle

Updated on December 13, 2011

When i was still a young boy i used to watch how my mom used to prepare pickle out of soft bamboo shoots. I really loved the pickle she used to prepare though it was a bit more sour than the usual packed pickles but the ingredients she used was very simple and easily available.


How to prepare........

  • For the preparation,firstly short tender shoots are selected and cut into small pieces and then it is immersed in water for about 1-2hrs.
  • After 1 or 2hrs take it out and mix it with salt as per needed,
  • Now add:

  • 8-9 dried red chillies,
  • grinded 4tbsp mustard seeds,
  • few curry leaves,
  • 6-8 garlic pieces and grind it,

  • 2 squeezed lime and
  • 2 tbsp of cumin seeds.
  • The mixture is mixed thoroughly and filled in a clean glass jar and
  • then in the jar, warm mustard oil is poured till it is up to the level of the mixture.
  • The jar is now closed tightly with the lid and it is basked in the sunlight for about two weeks and then,it is ready to be served...
