The pickle way: ferment your way to good health!

Sep 23, 2020 08:58 IST

Indians have always loved pickles as they can add ample flavour to any boring meal. Pickles are great immunity boosters when prepared at home with fresh and seasonal ingredients.

The process of fermenting seasonal vegetables with mustard oil and the right amount of salt could help boost our gut health. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, there is a reason why home-made achaar recipes are often passed from generation to generation.

Vinegar used in the fermentation process also helps aid the metabolism of the body. You can pickle some fresh onions and have them with everything from chicken tikka to falafel and sandwiches. The low heat pickling process ensures that the vegetable retains its nutritious value.

With that being said, don’t replace your daily veggie intake with pickles. Just add a small amount of it to your plate to reap all the benefits of this natural immunity booster. The next time you reach for that lemon, ginger or amla pickle jar, you won’t have to think twice!
