So I bought pickles from an Indian store because I love Indian food. It turned out I was not really eating it and it was sitting there in the kitchen cabinet leaking havoc (because apparently it fell and had a crack on the side). This led to the decision for me to cook it using whatever I had.
And it turned out just fine. Caution though as it was very strong in flavor and extremely oil best eaten with Rice
