Lemon Pickle - Pressure Cooker Method

I rarely prepare pickles at home, before whenever we go to India or Indian groceries i'll pick atleast 4 or 5 bottles of variety pickles as my H love to have sambar rice or curd rice with pickles..Few years ago, lemon pickle wasnt that much easy and possible for me to prepare at home without hot summer, as i have been brought by seeing my mom used to keep her jar full of salted lemon pieces in the sun to get ready as pickles..But once i came here to Paris, sunny days are less when compared with cold and wintery days..Its quite a tough task to make those delicious tangy lemon pickles as the traditional way,i was pestering my mom to find out an alternative way to make out these pickles finally through my mom i learned this pressure cooker method for making out our favourite lemon pickles with less time at home..This pressure cooker method need just few minutes and the pickles will get ready to enjoy immediately, eventhough i prefer them to enjoy after two or three days...I prepared this spicy pickles yesterday at home and i wanted to share with you all friends..Sending this pickle to CMT-Pickle guest hosted by Nivedita, event by Jagruti..
