Raisin pickle

Lent is finally over and we celebrate easter with Biriyani, Raita and raisin pickle. Sweet and the sour taste of raisin pickle goes well with Biriyani. When we stayed in Kottayam, my mother attending a wedding entirely depended on who is doing the catering. This particular caterer made excellent raisin pickle!!! and this is his recipe...How I managed to get it is a long story...

Raisins.. I use california sun dried raisins:200gm
ginger:50gm chopped very fine
garlic:50gm chopped fine
green chillies:50gm..chopped fine in to rounds
Chilli powder:2 tspn
turmeric powder:1 tspn
Sugar:2 tbl spn
Vinegar:3/4 cup
Mustard seeds:1 t spn
oil:2 tbl spn

heat oil, add mustard, when it finished spluttering, add the ginger, garlic and the green chillies, when it is slightly browned, reduce the fire to low, add the raisins and the chilli and turmeric powder.. Continue to stir for another 5 mints. take it off from fire, add the salt, vinegar and sugar. Can be eaten on the same day..keep it refrigerated
