This pickle recipe was invented by my friend's mother who was in US for some time. We bought some peaches and they were sour and hard. As usual we decided to throw them and aunty suggested we make a pickle out of it. We were skeptical how it would turn out but she went ahead and made the pickle.It took around 10 minutes and we tasted the pickle along with some paratha's and it was amazing! Peach is so juicy and when combined with chill powder and spices it tastes like they are made for each other ! Try this recipe with firm and sour peaches and you won't be disappointed.
