Green Chilly Pickle is one of the most loved and popular Indian pickle. It is loved by one and all. It is one of my favorite pickle. It is easy to make with less ingredients but takes almost a week to get ready as one needs to keep it in the sun. But the wait really worth while. Here is an easy recipe with step by step pictures.
Green Chilly - 250 gms
Mustard Seeds - 3-4 tbsp (I used yellow mustard seeds)Â
Mustard Oil - 1/2 - 1 Cup
Lemon juice of 3 Lemons
Turmeric powder - 2 tspÂ
Salt to taste
Wash the green chillies and pat dry them well with a clean kitchen towel. There should be no trace of moisture. Chop them in 1 inch pieces.
Grind the mustard seeds to a coarse powder.Take a clean glass jar, add the green chillies, ground mustard seeds and salt.
Mix them well by shaking the jar or use a clean non reactive spoon to mix the contents of the jar. Cover the jar with its lid tightly and keep in the sun for 2 days.
After 2 days win bath open the jar and add lemon juice and turmeric powder.
With a clean non reactive spoon mix everything very well. Close the jar and again keep in the sun for 2 days. Shake the jar everyday.
On the fifth day heat mustard oil till its smoking point and let it cool down slightly. Pour the mustard oil in the pickle jar. The oil should cover the pickle completely.
Cover the jar with lid and keep the pickle at room temperature for 2-3 days for the pickling process to happen.
Refrigerate the pickle once you start serving them. Always use a clean spoon for every servings.
