  1. MMMMM-- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.04

  2. Title: Red Pepper Pickle

  3. Categories: Indian, Relishes, Vegetables

  4. Yield: 6 Servings

  5. 1 Red bell pepper

  6. Small onion - see below

  7. 1/2 Lemon, juice of -OR-

  8. 1 tb Bottled lemon juice

  9. 2 ts Cumin seed

  10. Fresh-ground black pepper

  11. 2 tablespoons per

  12. person) as a crisp contrast to tender vegetables and creamy dhals.


  14. teaspoon

  15. tb tablespoon

  16. Cut the red pepper in half; deseed and remove all white membrane.

  17. Slice as thinly as the sharpness of your knife will allow :-) then

  18. cut the longer slices in half. Keep in mind always the way this will look when you serve it. Make it possible to pick them up in a

  19. tablespoon. Put the pepper slices in a non-metal bowl (if you use a metal one the lemon juice will react with it and the pickle will have a metallic

  20. taste).

  21. Cut the top end off the onion then shave off very thin slices. Really the sharper your knife the better. Make them wafer-thin and if you

  22. can't consider sharpening your knife. Separate the rings. Mix them in with the pepper slices - use your own judgement as to how much onion you want. I use 1/8 small onion to a medium red bell pepper but

  23. that's just me.

  24. Add the lemon juice, grind over black pepper to taste and mix in the cumin seed.

  25. Now cover the bowl and leave for at least an hour, NOT in the fridge but even possibly in the sun, stirring once or twice.

  26. Sorry can't remember where this recipe came from. Possibly same place as the potato chops. It is certainly not by me though I wish it was...

  27. MMMMM
