I’m really curious about this….I’m from Bangladesh and we eat a lot of pickles back there (not your dill pickles sold here :mrgreen ). these are usually made of fruits, mostly mangos (they have olive, and uses other fruits as well)….
well, the traditional way to make these are usually by drying them under the raw sun with spice on them…(some people cook it ‘coz it takes less time)….but it still takes about 3-4 days (its like making a complicated dish from scratch)….they use mustard oil mostly (A LOT!, some of these pickles are VERY oily), and put all sorts of different spices on…and for days they’ll keep it under the sun as a way of “cooking” it up (so its done all naturally)….now, my question is, does this stuff sound bad to u guyz? also, there r some other pickles that has NO oil in it whatsoever, but are made only with vinegar and spice, like red chilli peppers and stuff. Does this sound better then those with mustard oil in it?….my cousin who just came here from bangladesh gave us some…and I’m eating a bit everyday (i can’t resist, they’re sooo damn good)…I try not to over eat on them
last question is, i’ve heard some people say they eat cottage cheese….is it really ok to eat?
