Indian pickles have a huge fan following, not just in India but all across the globe. The eclectic flavours of the achaars are enough to amp up any bland meal. We all love achaar, but when we see a thick layer of oil floating on top of them, our brains sends our mind into a frenzy. Oil is something all weight-watchers want to avoid. So for them, we have brought a recipe of an achaar that is completely oil-free. This garlic pickle is full of flavours and spice, but contains no oil and salt; yet it smells and tastes delicious.
We found this oil-free garlic pickle recipe on YouTube channel ‘Cooking With Reshu’ and found it perfect for our weight loss diet. This achaar is made with the traditional technique of mixing all the whole ingredients together and letting it seep in acidic liquid for days to ferment. The combination of garlic, ginger, kalonji and whole red chillies is truly stellar. But remember to roast the kalonji first because it emanates an invigorating aroma that will make this achaar recipe winsome.
Here is the step-by-step recipe of no-oil garlic pickle.
