This is certainly a seasonal pickle. That's why, when at the time of Makar sankaranti these are available in plenty, I picked them up to make this wonderful pickle, which can be refrigerated and used for 10 days.
Raw turmeric has many health benefits which turmeric powder lacks.
Curcumin, the key ingredient is lost while it is processed. Many doctors and scientists say, if we take raw turmeric, we don't have to take anything at all to protect us. Turmeric is a miracle herb to protect against cancer, protects brain, relieves from arthritis, improves digestion, delays the onset of diabetes, it is a liver detoxifier, so, let's all make this wonder-pickle or preserve however you may call it, at least during the season when it is available.

Chopped fresh turmeric - 1/2 cup
Chopped tender ginger /mango ginger - 1/4 cup
Green chillies - 4-5, finely chopped
Lemon juice - 4-5 tbsps
Salt to taste
Dry roasted and powdered methi/fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp

To season
Gingely oil - 2 tsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 3/4 tsp

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Pickle/preserve
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 3 mts

This tasty, tangy pickle perched upon our traditional curd rice, தயிர்ஞ்சாதம் is heavenly!!!
