लिंबाचे गोड लोणचे - Sweet Lime Pickle

Lemon Pickle in English

Lemon Pickle in English

lemon pickle, sweet lemon pickle
साहित्य:
१२ लिंबं (टीप १)
१ किलो साखर (४ मोठ्या वाट्या वरपर्यंत भरून)
१ वाटी मिठ
३/४ वाटी लाल तिखट
२ टिस्पून जिरेपूड

कृती:
१) लिंबं धुवून घ्यावीत. व्यवस्थित पुसून घ्यावी, पाणी राहू देवू नये. मध्यम आकाराच्या फोडी करून त्यातील बिया काढून टाकाव्यात. एका लिंबाच्या साधारण ८ ते १० फोडी कराव्यात.
२) फोडींना मिठ, तिखट, जिरेपूड लावून साधारण ८ दिवस स्वच्छ काचेच्या कोरड्या बरणीत भरून ठेवावे.
पद्धत १
साखरेचा १ तारी पाक करावा (१ किलो साखरेला दिड वाटी पाणी). पाक गार करावा. त्या पातेल्यात ८ दिवस मुरवलेल्या लिंबाच्या फोडी घालव्यात. ढवळून बरणीत भरावे.
सर्व लोणचे बरणीत भरले कि बरणीच्या तोंडाशी १ मुठभर साखर घालून झाकण बंद करावे. लोणचे चांगले मुरायला ४-५ महिने लागतात.

पद्धत २
जर पाक करायचा नसेल तर नुसती साखर, ८ दिवस मुरवलेल्या लिंबाच्या फोडीत मिक्स करावी. बरणीत भरून ठेवावे. रोजच्या रोज बरणी उघडून, स्वच्छ व कोरड्या चमच्याने लोणचे ढवळावे. असे साखर पूर्ण विरघळेस्तोवर करावे.

टीप:
१) लिंबं पातळ सालीची घ्यावी. जर अमेरीकेत असाल तर पातळ सालीची लिंबं मिळत नाहीत. अशावेळी पाणी एकदम चांगले उकळवावे. गॅस बंद करून त्यात आख्खी लिंबं घालावीत आणि वर झाकण ठेवावे. पाणी गार झाले कि लिंबं व्यवस्थित पुसून घ्यावी आणि एकदोन तास वार्‍यावर ठेवावी म्हणजे पाणी पूर्ण निघून जाईल. मग वरच्या कृतीनेच लोणचे करावे.

  5. Hello,
    you can steam cook lemons in pressure cooker. But you will have to put the pickle in refrigerator. Also, the shelf life of pickles reduces.

  12. Hello

    Thank you for visiting chakali blog and leaving comment.
    Yes it is fine to make lonche according to your mother in law's method. But I am not sure about the shelf life. If you make it in a large quantity you may have to keep it in the fridge. OR prepare pickle in a small quantity which would last only for a week or so.

  16. Hi Vaidehi, Instead of Sugar can we use Jaggery (gul) ?. If yes, then how much jaggery should be used for 12 lemons?

  17. Hi Vaidehi,

    1. Hello Rohan

      Yes you can use jaggery to make this pickle. If you have 2 portions of lemon pieces, then use 1.5 portion of jaggery. (use grated jaggery)
      Follow first two steps of the above recipe. After 8 days, lemon will leave the juice. Take the oozed juice into a clean and dry mixing bowl. Crush the jaggery in that juice and add this mixture to the lemon. Mix well. You may keep it in the sun light to get a better and quick result (do not put the lid on. Cover the jar with a thick cotton cloth)
