Girija Paati’s grandmother always served Avakkai that was at least a year old. The new Avakkai was left to ferment in a cool dark room with regular turnovers till she felt it was ready and this is the recipe and tradition that we follow even today. 

Girija Paati's Avakkai recipe is one that her family has guarded closely for over a century. Girija Paati fondly recounts instances where her mother caught her and her little sister with their hands literally in the pickle jar. Stealing chunks of Avakkai and munching on it as she played during summer holidays with her 5 siblings is one of her her favourite memories.

According to her, the best way to eat this pickle is to mix it with hot rice, along with the oil from the pickle, and roll it into bite-size balls (urundais). Sit in a circle with your family members, and share these urundais around along with scary stories. Make sure you have a bowl of curd or home-made butter milk. 

For our 4pm snack, we love having Avakkai as a dip along with Muthu Saram (Mullu Murukku). Try it!

Awesome Avakkai!

I am a pickle buff, no meal goes down without a generous helping of pickle. This was truly mouth- watering. Would have loved to have channa also but it was still tasty!!! 😋😋😋❤

OK. NOT SO GREAT

Hi Sabin, thank you for sharing that.
The pickle is an AGED avakkai which has been fermented for almost a year under specific conditions to create high pro-biotics (good for the gut).
It is an acquired taste similar to many fermented foods.
The season for the fresh Avakkai will be starting in a few months. That maybe more to your taste as we see that you love our Mangai Thokku and Spicy lime pickle.
