We has to make our favorite recipe of pickle or recipe using pickles etc. Lacto - fermented or quick pickled . Our host is Camila of Culinary Adventures with Camila .
Pickles has been a favourite in every cuisine . Pickles are a means of preserving the vegetables for the colder seasons when the fresh vegetables can't be sourced . Mostly pickles are made during summer season in India. There are many varities of pickles made in India. I choose to make this quick raw papaya pickle.
We have a papaya tree in our garden . We used to enjoy ripe papaya and I wanted to make a pickle with raw papaya.
As this raw papaya pickle is quick pickle , it can be relished once it is made.
