Dried Shrimp Tomato Pickle

This pickle has been a regular pickle in my household, alongside other pickles such as tomato mint and a sesame tomato pickle.

It combines the rich, umami flavors of dried shrimp with the tanginess of fresh tomatoes, creating a perfect side dish.

I started using it as a condiment for sandwiches and as a side dish for rice. I even paired it with samosas, and they tasted great together!
