Hari Mirch Ka Achar Recipe or Green Chilli Pickle Recipe goes very well with Indian meals. Here is my mother's recipe to make this pickle.
Wash the chilies and wipe them using a cotton cloth.
Make a slit in the center of each chilli using a knife.
Grind mustard seeds in a blender to make a coarse powder.
Mix ground mustard seeds, salt, turmeric powder and 1/2 cup mustard oil in a bowl.
Fill this masala in the slit of the chilies and arrange the chilies in a large bowl.
Add lemon juice in the bowl and mix well with chilies.
Cover the bowl with a cotton cloth.
Leave the pickle in the bowl for 2-3 days so that the excess water evaporates.
Fill the pickle in clean glass jars.
Heat 1/2 cup mustard oil in a pan till it starts to fume.
Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Pour the oil in the jar so that the pickle is covered with oil.
Keep the jar in sunlight for 3-4 days.
The pickle is now ready to use.
This pickle can be stored for 3-4 months in a cool and dry place.
Keep the jar in sunlight every 30 days and keep shaking the pickle after every 30 days.
