Homemade, Punjabi-style pickles are what the good folks at Pikkle Shikkle are bottling up. Mango jaggery, chickpea, bitter gourd, and fenugreek are just some of the out-of-the-jar flavours you can sign up for.
For those of who love helpings of pickle with your meals but are wary of the preservative-loaded offerings that line supermarket racks, Pikkle Shikkle is a godsend. A Bangalore-based brand, Pikkle Shikkle offers pickles packed with Punjabi flavours. And you can expect plenty much more than the regular, done-to-death mango variety. Right now (they retail on Qtrove), you can take home jars of chickpea (a bestseller), bitter gourd, fenugreek, and mango mixed with jaggery pickles. There’s also the classics — Mix Vegetable and Spicy Mango.
Apart from their range of pickles, the brand also offers natural jams. The Apple Cinnamon (when in stock) is apparently a winner. So are the kiwi and pineapple. Keep your eyes open for their melt-in-the-mouth Pinni Ladoos as well. Pikkle Shikkle organises regular pop-ups in the city, follow them on Facebook for more details.
