Cauliflower pickle

Tangy, hot spicy  pickle with hot parathas or child curd rice yummm mouth watering isn't it. Most of the Indians will start their meal with pickle specialy in Andhra. In Andhra we make a large variety of pickles with almost all vegetables of course with non-vegetarian too. I first tasted this pickle in my Aunts place. From long time this recipe was in my draft almost from 2 years but the picture is new:). This pickle will not stay for long out side hardly it will stay for 1 week  so you have to keep this in the fridge.
