   12                    Limes
      1/4  Cup           Coarse Sea Salt
    1      Tbs           Fenugreek Seeds
    1      Tbs           Mustard Seeds
    2      Tbs           Chile Powder
    1      Tbs           Ground Turmeric
    1      Cup           Vegetable Oil
                         Cilantro -- for garnish
 
      1. Cut each lime lengthwise into 8 slim wedges- place in a large bowl
      - sprinkle with salt and set aside.
 
      2. Put fenugreek and mustard into a skillet and dry-roast over medium
      heat about 1 to 2 minutes, until they begin to pop.  Put into a mortar
      and grind to a fine powder with a pestle.
 
      3. Add chili and turmeric and mix well.  Sprinkle the spice mixture
      over the limes and stir gently. Pour the oil over the limes and cover
      with a dry cloth.
 
      4. Leave the bowl in a sunny place 10 to 12 days, until the limes have
      softened.  Pack in jars , seal them, and store in a cool, dark place.
 
      I found this recipe in 'The Hot and Spicy Cookbook' by Crescent Books.
 
 
      I have yet to try these out, but the sound interesting.
