Dates Pickle

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.


Dates 250 gm
Ginger ½ cup
Garlic ½ cup
Vinegar ½ -1 cup
Sugar 1cup
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.
