  6. Fill it in a glass bottle cover the mouth of bottle with a muslin cloth. Keep it in sunlight for a day.
  7. Next day add enough mustard oil that you had heated and brought to room temperature. Oil should cover the entire pickle. If needed heat up more oil and cool and add.

My Tip:

If your ber is slightly bigger, you can remove seeds too and make pickle. If properly made, can be stored upto a year.
