Pluck the coriander leaves.

Clean the leaves and keep them in a colander to drain the water.


Dry the leaves on a piece of paper to absorb the water. (This step is essential to preserve the pickle for a long time) (If you are preparing small quantity for 2 days like that you can skip this step)
In the meanwhile, clean the tamarind without any seeds and stings.
Clean the tamarind with water.
Heat the tamarind by adding a little water.

By adding a little water into the tamarind … take a thick juice from it.
