Fermented Pickle

Its been so long that I have not visited Nepal.

There are so many good food that i miss so much and khalpi achaar is one of them. Khalpi achaar is made from mature cucumber. In london i visited so many shops for mature cucumber but could not find it. Lastly I made my own version of khalpi with substitute of watermelon. I am making this third time. Yes upper part is lil bit harder then mature cucumber but it will satisfy your cravings for khalpi. Here it is. Enjoy
