Hari Mirch Ka Achar or Green Chilli Pickle is a delicious North Indian style pickle recipe where fresh green chillies are pickled with mustard seeds and lemon juice. This pickle goes very well with any Indian meals. Here is my mother’s recipe of how to make green chilli pickle or hari mirch ka achar.
Be it summer or winter or monsoon, we love having a jar of pickle, ready to be savoured! Unlike mangoes which are explicitly available only during summer, there are some achar or pickles like Gajar, Gobhi Aur Shalgam Ka Achar that you can make anytime you want!
But out of all, I like nibbling on Hari Mirch Ka Achar Recipe or Green Chilli Pickle Recipe the most!
Green Chilli Pickle Recipe is made using fresh, green chillies, mustard seeds, mustard oil and salt. In order to make it slightly tangy and colourful, lemon juice and turmeric powder are added to it respectively.
These days, ready-made pickles are easily available in markets and superstores. However, I often have doubts about the quality of ingredients used by manufacturers. Also, when pickles are made for commercial purposes, I believe somewhere down the line, that personal touch goes away.
Homemade pickles taste way better as we walk extra miles to ensure that the best ingredients are used and the process remains hygienic.
This hari mirch or green chilli achar recipe is great to add just the right amount of spice to your meal. It’s also a great way of adding some oomph as the divine spice of the green chillies get masked with the flavored of the pickle.
If you’re one who likes to have a touch of spice in the form of pickled goodness with your meal or if you are regularly reaching out for those achars, then this Rajasthani hari ka mirch ka achar recipe is a must try.
Therefore, I suggest, buy some fresh, green chillies and prepare this finger-licking Hari Mirch Ka Achar Recipe. Store this pickle in a clean jar, keep it near sunlight, shake it well and it is going to remain fresh for more than three months. Savour it with piping hot Pudina Laccha Parathas or relish it with rice, curries; Hari Mirch Ka Achar Recipe is surely going to tickle your taste buds.
