Bhindi til ka achaar

This is one of the rarer pickles, not seen often. Crisp ladies fingers coated with sesame seeds along with pickling spices and mustard oil.
Lemon juice added to the bhindi removes its stickiness and leaves it tart and crisp.
Serve it as soon as it is prepared to enjoy the clean and fresh flavours of this pickle.
