Green Chilli Pickle


Green Chillies - 1/2 kg
Lemons - 10 no.
(take the juice, keep aside)

Mustard seeds - 1/4 th cup
Salt - 1 & 1/2 cups

Asafoetida - 1/4 th tsp
Fenugreek seeds - 3 tsp

Turmeric powder - 4 tsp

Rice Bran Oil - 2 cups


Fry Asafoetida and fenugreek and grind in the grinder with salt and mustard seeds. Cut chillies in small pieces. Mix them well with the ground masala. Pour the lemon juice over the chillies. Fill them in the jar. Heat oil. When cold, add to the pickle. Cover and leave aside.

Serve with Parathas.


Use Rice Bran Oil it tastes good and brings out natural flavor from spices and chillies. I use it for making Aloo Kurma too. Do try and see the difference.

Hi sharmi,
Thanks! it tastes great with roti's and parathas. Which part of Andhra is she from Sharmi?

Hi Anusha,
It's good to try in small amounts. If u like the taste of the chillies, I would say go for it. Probably medium hot chillies works well. More milder u won't get that zing in taste. Hope, I cleared your doubt!

Hi Richa,
We finished it off with in few days. Personally I prefer for parathas!

In this pickle you gave Asafoetida - 1/4th cup.It is too much amount I think.
