Dates is an excellent dry fruit. But if it is pickled it goes well with Biriyani or Ghee Rice. Here is a simple way to make the pickle.
|Vinegar||½ -1 cup|
|Warm water||1 cup|
|Chilly Powder||2 tsp|
Deseed the dates if it is seeded. Cut ginger and garlic lengthwise. Make sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water. To the dates add all other ingredients and mix well with your hand. When sugar syrup is slightly warm add this to the dates mixture. Keep aside for 10 days. If it is felt that after 10 days the pickle is dry add vinegar/warm water and loosen before serving.
Note: You can also use pickle powder instead of chilly powder.
