  • Wash and drain the gerkins. Remove ends (stalk & bottom) and gently mash each gerkin with a pestle.
  • This is just to ensure that the spices enter the gerkin which would otherwise be bland.
  • You can even slit them halfway, but the pestle is a far easier option.
  • In a pan (or a pressure cooker which is the easiest and time and energy consuming utensil) add the gerkins and all the ingredients mentioned above.
  • Stir and add about 2-3 tablespoons of water. Cover the lid, add the weight (whistle) and cook on high flame.
  • Turn off flame when the first whistle blows off.
  • Allow the weight to loosen, open, stir well to ensure all ingredients have been mixed properly.
  • Serve hot with steaming boiled rice and fish curry (serving suggestion only) .
