Easy, Healthy Lemon Pickle Recipe With Lime Peel

lemon pickle recipe
Lemon peel pickle? No, I am not kidding. I have been following this trick ever since I tried it the first time and it was a big hit.


How many of you use the lemon peel after squeezing lemon juice? I used to throw away the peel as trash unless I researched that every single part of the lemon fruit is beneficial for health.
So why throw the peel? I made lemon achaar with that. It is no less tangier n tastier than the normal lemon pickle.

So do not throw the lemon skin from now onward after squeezing juice from it!! Just dry the lemon peel for a couple of hours, add sugar, salt, and cumin seeds and store in a bottle. Keep it in sunlight for a few days and the pickle is ready!!
I have two jars ready already.

Since you're adding salt, sugar & cumin seeds as taste enhancers, they will supply the needed juices to the pickle. Lemon peel is scientifically proven as beneficial to health. Never ever throw it, even if it may taste bitter sometimes.  

Recipe
Lemon peel (I make lemondae with 1 lemon daily and dry it for a couple of hours and then throw it in the jar, adding little salt)
Salt
Sugar
Black salt
Asafetida 
cumin seeds

Tip: Add salt, cumin seeds to the peels after drying. After a few days, add sugar, black salt, and asafetida. Adding sugar later will ensure that the pickle ripens quickly.

Tip 2: Add 4-5 pieces of your old lemon pickle to the new pickle and your pickle will get ready in a few days. :)

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
