How to make Mustard Green Chilli Pickle Recipe

  1. To begin making the Mustard Green Chilli Pickle, firstly cut the green chillies into half or more pieces.

  2. Take the green chillies in a mixing bowl, add a pinch of salt and mix well.

  3. Keep those chillies in a bowl for at least half an hour. Drain the chilli-salt water and keep green chillies in a bowl. (This way green chillies will reduce their spicyness)

  4. Take another mixing bowl. Combine mustard splits (kuriya), asafoetida, oil, salt, jaggery, lemon juice and turmeric powder in a bowl.

  5. Toss all the ingredients and beat them in round motion with hand for about 4 to 5 minutes.

  6. After 4 to 5 minutes, add the green chilies and toss them. Mix everything well.

  7. Adjust salt and lemon juice according to your taste. Transfer them in to a sterilised bottle or in a glass jar and store in a fridge for long.

  8. Serve Mustard Green Chilli Pickle with your everyday meal for that extra hint of tanginess and spiciness.
