Chorangey Para ( Lime Pickle )

Chorangey Para (Lime Pickle) is a popular Indian condiment that is made with fresh limes and a blend of spices. The pickle is tangy, spicy, and has a unique flavor that is unlike any other pickle. Here is a recipe for making Chorangey Para:


  1. 1 kg Fresh limes, sliced
  2. 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  3. 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  4. Salt to taste
  5. 2 tbsp Vinegar
  6. 2 tbsp Oil
  7. 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  8. 1 tsp Fenugreek seeds
  9. 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  10. 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  11. 2 tbsp Sesame oil


In a pan, heat oil and add sliced limes, salt, turmeric powder, and red chilli powder. Cook for a few minutes until the limes are slightly tender.

Add vinegar to the pan and mix well. Cook for a few minutes until the vinegar has been absorbed.

In a separate pan, heat sesame oil and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and fenugreek seeds. Once they start to crackle, add the cooked limes to the pan.

Mix well and cook for a few minutes until the spices have evenly coated the limes.

Turn off the heat and let the pickle cool. Once cooled, transfer it to a clean, dry glass jar.

Store the jar in a cool, dry place for a week or two to allow the flavors to develop.

Chorangey Para is a traditional Indian pickle that is typically served as a side dish with rice or roti. The pickle is made with fresh limes, which have a tangy and slightly sour flavor, and a blend of spices, which add a spicy kick to the pickle. To ensure the pickle stays fresh, it is important to use fresh ingredients and to store it in a clean, dry jar. Additionally, it is recommended to use vinegar and oil as natural preservatives, as opposed to chemical preservatives, which can affect the taste and quality of the pickle. Chorangey Para is easy to make and is a perfect addition to any meal, especially during the summer months when limes are in season.
