This pickle is very good for digestion. Whenever some heavy meal is prepared at home it is definitely served with the food. I do not remember ever having poori or kachori without it.

It also adds great flavor to the food. It goes really well with most of the north Indian food.

Just serve half a teaspoon with roti, poori, sabji, daal, chola bhatura and Paav bhaji. You can add these to any kind of curries.
