Indian meals have an unconditional love towards pickles and we cannot disagree on this part. Pickles, though eaten in a little quantity, can add up to the flavour of any dish and make it more delicious. It is a condiment that could be easily found in every Indian household stored in small or big jars. There are numerous varieties of pickles from sweet to sour. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, every state or you can say that every single region, even the smallest, has its own unique variety of chicken. From mango pickle to chicken pickle, we have so many varieties that just don’t let us stop having them.
