Vegan’s Favorite: Chilli Pickle

Chilli pickle is one of the famous Indian foods that almost every vegan likes. The history of this cuisine started almost 5,000 years ago. It began when different cultures and groups communicated to Indians, which led to rich flavors and types of food.

Some regional cuisines influence Indian cuisine in general. The reason why these foods are different from one another is due to the variety of the culture, soil type, occupations, climate, and ethnic group.

The availability of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices is also one of the factors why each region has its signature dish. Therefore, the same name of the dish between one and another area does not mean it has a similar presentation and taste.

Honey vinegar will be used in this recipe to replace the use of the non-halal ingredient. However, do not use it too much because your vegetable will be tasted sweet instead of the right level of acid.
