Thidir means sudden in Tamil.
This pickle is generally made in weddings.
This lasts long in the fridge as long as you take care of it. ( By not using a wet spoon or accidentally dropping some water in it)
You will need
5 yellow lemons
Pickle chili powder (this is different from the red chili powder, since they use different kind of red chillies, if you don't have it, you can use red chili powder)
Wash the lemons, and put them in a vessel and cover them with water.
Let the water come to a boil and let it boil for a good 10 minutes.
now drain the water slowly and wait for the lemons to cool.
Take them out and cut them the way you want.
Save all the juice and put it all back in the vessel
now spread the mixture flat in the vessel and dived in 4 parts.
You will need chili powder as much as the 1/4th part of the lemon. and salt about 3/4th of the chili powder. Hing will be less than 1/4th of the salt.
(This is all done in proportions)
3/4th of lemon = chili powder
3/4th of chili powder = salt
1/4th of Salt=hing
Now add the chili powder and salt and hing.
In a separate vessel heat up oil (enough to cover the lemons) and add the mustard and red chillies and once the mustard sputters, pour it over the mixture and mix immediately.
Make sure the lemon is completely soaked in oil.
One it cools, carefully store in a dry container and store in fridge.
