This year has been about using up every possible ingredient without much wastage. Covid lockdown created a sudden shortage of hitherto easily available produce and while I have always been a proponent of low wastage, this time I stretched myself and my ingredients :-D, to produce quite a few interesting dishes. The stars of my show were the watermelon rind and orange peel and I will be gradually documenting all the recipes that I created out of these scraps.
I will start with the Orange Peel/rind pickle that I made, more so because I am quite pleased with the picture that I clicked. The bangle adorned hands of my neighbor, inspired me to style the shot, with the bright colors matching the exciting tanginess of the pickle. Not to mention that both of us were out of our minds with boredom, being jailed at home for so many months and needed some action to entertain us 😀
