Asafoetida 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder 2 tsp

Wash the lemons and wipe them dry using a dry cloth. There should not remain a single drop of water otherwise the pickle will not last long. Squeeze out the juice of 2 lemons to get approximately 2 tsp of lemon juice. Cut the remaining lemons into quarters. Keep it aside. Take lemon quarters in a sterilized glass jar. In a separate sterilized bowl mix together the lemon juice, salt and turmeric powder. And pour this mixture over the lemons. Mix well. Cover the jar with a lid and place it in dry place for 8 days. Toss the contents of the jar after every 2 days. In a thick bottom pan take sugar and water make sugar syrup (Ektari paak). Let it cool. In sugar syrup add chili powder and asafetida. Mix well.
