Green Chilli Pickle

Ingredients to make Green Chilli Pickle

  • 10-12 big green cihllies
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of all spice powder (Garam masala)
  • 1 teaspoon of dry mango powder (Amchoor)
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard seeds, coarsely ground
  • 1 teaspoon of onion seeds
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon of coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of asafoetida
  • 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds
  • 8 tablespoon of mustard Oil

How to make Green Chilli Pickle

  1. Wash and wipe the chillies dry. Wash and completely dry any utensil to be used. There should be no water.
  2. Chop off the head of the chillies from one end. Make a slit lengthwise in the chillies, starting from the open end (where you removed the head) to the other end, such that the other end is still intact.
  3. Remove the seeds from the chillies and place them in a medium sized bowl. To this add all the spices except the oil in the medium bowl. Now add 1 tbsp oil to the spice mixture and mix well.
  4. Gently hold open the chillies and using your fingers, fill in the spice mixture into the chillies. Press it gently and add more filling if required. Now place the chillies in a dry and clean storage jar. Pour the remaining oil from top.
  5. Give it a few firm shakes. Place the jar in the sunlight for 3-6 days.

My Tip:

Add more salt if storing for a longer period as the salt acts as a preservative. * You can store the pickle in refrigerator as well if you fear it getting spoiled. * Exposure to Sun would depend on weather. If it is good sunny weather then it may be ready in 3-4 days. Since the weather here was mostly cloudy with persistent rains, it took 6 days for it ripen well.
