mixed fruit pickle

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
This  pickle was my favorite when I was kid. But, it was rarely made because it has nuts in it and buying nuts was not much affordable.

Whenever we got the chance to eat it, we used to hide it in our hands to eat it later, slowly and enjoying it fully.
Now, my kids do not like it at all! I feel so bad for them!! They do not like anything sweet. All the sweet things are for me! They do not know the real happiness which is hiding in it!! hehe!!! going mad about this pickle. Now, I make it for myself and enjoy it whenever I want. But that joy will never come back!!

Very easy to make and can store it in a refrigerator for months.
Coming to the recipe :
Lemons - 12 to 15
Cashew nuts - 1 cup
Almonds - 1 cup, cut into pieces
Dry dates - 1 cup

Oil - 1/8 cup
Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp
Hing - a pinch
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder  to taste 
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Jaggery - 1/4 cup

Wash the lemons,  cut into 4 pieces. Remove the seeds.
Clean the dry dates, remove the seeds.
Keep both lemon and dry dates in a separate vessel and cook in a cooker for 6 to eight whistles.
Allow it to cold.
Till that,
Heat oil in a kadai. Add mustard seeds and allow to splutter. Add hing and remove from the heat. Allow it to cool. Once cold, add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, Jaggery. Cook it again for few minutes. Cool it.
Take the lemon, dry dates, cashew nuts and almonds in a bowl. Add the ready masala and salt to it. Mix well.
Store in a glass jar. Use after 2 days.
