Piaaz-Torshi Recipe
pickled onions with garlic and mint
Makes Servings

  • small, white onions, 1 kg (2.2 lbs)
  • garlic, 250 grams (0.55 lbs)
  • mint, 2 spoons dried or 250 grams (0.55 lbs) fresh
  • white vinegar
  • salt


If using fresh mint, wash it and allow to dry completely. It should then be finely chopped. Peel garlic and grate it. Mix garlic and mint well. Peel onions.

Drop a layer of onions in a jar. Pour in the garlic-mint mix and some salt. Repeat until the jar is full. Pour in vinegar to the top of the jar, and place the lid on tightly.

Store in a cool, dry place for 2-3 months. When removing onions from the jar, use a clean, oil-free spoon or fork.
