Sweet & Sour Okra Pickle Recipe

I used to hate vegetables and their taste. Till today i try to find other ways of having vegetables without hating their taste. So i chose to turn them in to pickles… WHO DOESN’T LOVE PICKLES …


This is my second time of making Okra pickle, and i thought of sharing the recipe, because it does taste different and delicious. Coming to the taste, it tastes like Sweet & Sour different than other pickles. My mother loved it so much, that she told me to keep some for our vegetable vendor.

Ingrediants are simple and method is simpler. Here are the quantities and measurements i used to prepare it and pictures i took while and after preparing, and when it’s ready.
