  • 1 x 250 ml Woolworths sweet-and-sour pickling condiment bottle
  • 3 T tamarind paste
  • 2 limes, juice
  • ½ red chilli, crushed

Cooking Instructions

Add the vegetables to the pickling liquid and allow to steep for 15 minutes before serving.

Cook's tip: Having a jar of pickles in the fridge can jazz up anything by adding flavour and texture. Fresh pickle with fish, red onion pickle with curries and pork, mixed pickle with roast chicken. Or toss the pickle through salad.
