Instant Green Chilli Pickle
An instant, spicy chilli pickle.
- 100 Grams Green chillies (I have used less spicy, long green chillies.)
- 1 Lemon (You can use 3-4 Tsp Vinegar instead.)
- 2 Tsp Fennel Seeds
- 2 Tsp Jeera/Cumin
- 1 Tsp Mustard Seeds (Rai/Sarson)
- 1 Pinch Asafoetida
- 1 Tsp Turmeric/ Haldi Powder
- 1/2 Cup Oil (I have used refined groundnut oil. You can replace it with Mustard oil or any oil of your choice.)
- Dry roast the Mustard Seeds, Jeera and fennel seeds on low flame until aroma arises. Cool to room temperature and grind to a fine powder.
- Wash and dry the chillies with a clean towel. Cut them into bite sized pieces. Add the ground spice powder, turmeric, asafoetida and salt to the chillies and mix well.
- Heat oil in a pan to smoking point and cool it a little. Add the oil to the chillies and mix well. Transfer to a clean and dry container. The pickle is ready to eat.
