Lahsun ka pickle, also known as Veluthulli achar, is a sour and savory Indian condiment. The majority of Indian staple dishes, such as rice, chapati, pulao, curd rice, etc., can be served with this garlic pickle as a flavor enhancer. Each state in India has its own unique recipe for garlic pickles, each of which has a distinct flavor and taste and embodies the traditions of that particular state.

    Velluthulli Achar - About

    In Kerala, garlic pickle is referred to as velluthulli achar. In Malayalam, the word veluthulli denotes garlic, but the word achar is a widely used expression that denotes Indian pickle. In Hindi, a garlic pickle is referred to as lahsun ka achar or lahsun achar.

    The garlic pickle from north India differs from that from south India. There will be regional variations even though the pickling method is essentially the same, such as the use of mustard oil in place of gingelly oil.

    The recipe for the Kerala-style garlic pickles which my mother used to make for years will be discussed today. My mom used to make this garlic-chili pickle frequently. She makes it in tiny pickle bathes and keeps it in the refrigerator with other pickles like pachamanga achar and lubica achar for later use. If properly stored, it keeps its freshness for one month at room temperature and up to three months in the refrigerator.

    For the making of this south Indian garlic pickle, general south Indian pickle ingredients will also be used. The garlic will be spiced up with chili powder, asafoetida, fenugreek powder, and a tiny bit of ginger. As preservatives, vinegar, salt, and gingelly oil will be used.

    Expert's tips for making lahsun pickle

    1. I used Indian garlic, which is much smaller than Chinese garlic, to make the garlic pickle. If using Chinese garlic, cut it in half before using.
    2. Throw away any poor or damaged garlic while cleaning the rest. There will be white or black powder on top of it. The pickle's shelf life may be shortened by these contaminated garlic cloves.
    3. You can use coconut oil or gingelly oil to make this Kerala-style garlic pickle. The flavor may alter over time if coconut oil is used. Gingelly oil is the ideal option for big volumes and a longer shelf life.
    4. It is necessary to sauté the garlic, veluthulli, or lahsun for a while when making this veluthulli achar. The garlic should be dense and chewy when pickled, so only partially cook them; never brown them.
    5. In this recipe, I used vinegar. In addition to giving our pickle a sour flavor, the vinegar serves as a preservative. The three preservatives utilized in the preparation of this Kerala garlic pickle are the use of vinegar, salt, and oil.
    6. Use dry containers and utensils to extend the shelf life of any pickle. Verify there is enough oil on top, and only transfer the pickle once it has reached room temperature.
