Lemon Pickle - Jamie Oliver

The recipe is from his book 30 Minute Meals, Jamie serves this with Vegetable Rogan Josh.

Top Tip!

When you get to this bit: 'When everything starts to sizzle, add the sliced lemon and a pinch of salt, count to ten'.

Seriously, I say to cook for a minute or you'll find the lemon rind is quite hard.

Lemons

Did you know, lemons are a great source of vitamin C and fibre, lemons contain many plant compounds, minerals, and essential oils.

You can, of course, serve this with pretty much any Indian curry, but I tell you what, I recommend you also make Jamie Oliver's Bombay Potatoes; they are seriously good.

Bombay Potatoes are from his book Jamie's Great Britain.
