fresh turmeric pickle recipe - a quick and easy pickle with just three ingredients.

Jump to Recipe

fresh turmeric pickle recipe – this is one of the most simplest turmeric pickle made with just three ingredients viz turmeric, lemon juice and salt. this is a gujarati recipe of turmeric pickle and is often served with meals. another pickle recipe from gujarati cuisine on blog is this mango pickle recipe.

fresh turmeric pickle pickle

we have a gujarati friend and one day when having lunch at her place, she served us two pickles. one with fresh turmeric roots and the other one with mango ginger roots (ambe halad in marathi and aama haldi in hindi).

those pickles were the simplest i have had with no spices and oil. i loved both of them and so had decided that when i get fresh turmeric roots or mango ginger, i will make this pickle. i did not ask her for the recipes though.

since i have a good collection of cookbooks, i read a pickle recipe which had ginger, turmeric and mango ginger in a cook book -“gujarati kitchen: family recipes for the global palate” by bhanu hajratwala. so i loosely adapted this recipe from there. the book has some non vegetarian recipes too.

to make this turmeric pickle no cooking is involved and you just need to mix everything. the only prepping work you need to do is peel and chop the fresh turmeric roots. you can even slice the turmeric. squeeze the lemon juice and then you are almost done with the pickle. the turmeric stains everything yellow… even your hands. so avoid using anything white like a white board or white napkin.

then just mix the chopped turmeric, lemon juice and salt together in a bowl or directly in the jar. close the jar and keep the pickle for six days in the refrigerator. after 6 days, the pickle is ready to serve.

during the 6 days, shake the jar once everyday and keep back in the refrigerator. the lemon juice should completely cover the turmeric, otherwise the pickle may get spoiled.

you can also add ginger or mango ginger with the turmeric. to spice up green chilies can also be added.

we all know turmeric has a lot of health benefits. so i won’t go into the details. a different recipe and a few ayurvedic properties here. another nice informative post here.

the turmeric pickle can be served as a condiment before meals to aid digestion and also during the meals. this turmeric pickle stays good for about 2 months in the refrigerator.

  1. I was in a rush and picked up amba haldi by accident at the store. I’m assuming it’ll taste different but still be ok to pickle using this method? Thanks!

    • Welcome Kristina. Yes you can use this pickle recipe with amba haldi.

  2. Hi Dassana,

    I make this pickle, but I add equal quantity of fresh ginger and amba haldi, green chillies too and the rest of the procedure is the same. Tastes yum and also good for health.

    Cheers,
    Sulekha

    • yes sulekha, this way also the turmeric pickle can be made. i have tasted pickle made like this before at someone’s place. i agree it tastes good as well as healthy too.

  3. Thank you, it is just what I have been looking for.

    I find that the raw tumeric tastes like a spicy carrot. I put it in everything along with my pickled garlic.

    Enjoying the experience.
