I am not much fan of any kind of pickle , so was little doubtful with, how the final outcome will be! Even I never made simple pickles, which my Mom used to make every year at home, so it was fun to try one pickle on hand, I was feeling exciting just by the feelings that I am making a pickle on my own :) . finally when I finished it, I like it so much that I need no words from hubby for approving it. :P .
Similar pickle can be made with Bitter gourd... just substitute Yam Elephant with bitter gourd!!!

You can participate by presenting any of your recipe made up of either spinach or fenugreek. for that you can email me that on email@example.com with picture(if u have any) and recipe, or just provide me info if you have already that post on your blog... let it be fun and little interactive...
