I guess everybody loves home made pickles because they are prepared with special care, love and affection ,pickles are not my cup of tea because I feel they need proper measurement and most of my cooking is without measurement I just use approx ingredients needed but when I asked my mom ingredients for gobhi pickle which she had prepared and got from home she told me she never uses any measurement its just Andaz se ,I couldnt help smiling still I had to blog the recipe so I asked her again if she can tell me the approx amount of the ingredients,she thought hard and then told me the measurements ,u guys must be thinking why I am blabbering so much about the pickle its because i am going to share my moms recipe of Instant Gobhi pickle for JFI Cauliflower hosted this month by Paajaka recipes and started by Indira of Mahanandi.
