Fish Pickle- Kerala Style

When it comes to non-veg pickles, I prefer homemade ones to store bought. Whenever I make them, it doesn’t go past a week. Well, it so happens that the moment we lay eyes on Non-veg pickle, we go crazy. So instead of taking a spoonful, we end up having generous servings. Tuna is the ideal fish for pickling.

If not, you could buy fish steaks, fry them and then break…

I LOVE pickles. We used to buy Avakkai pickle till I tried making it at home some time back. The best part about making this pickle is the simplicity in its preparation.
