Hello friends,

Instant Green Chilli Pickle is a delightful, tantalizing and a perfect combination of green chillies, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, dry mango powder, turmeric powder, mustard oil and other spices. It will add the extra oomph to every meal. Get ready for an explosion of flavor.

Today's recipe is created based on the cooking knowledge I have... and I would love to rate this recipe as 10 out of 10 as it turned out exactly the way it was planned . 

What's so special in this instant green chilli pickle?

The special thing is that the spice level of green chillies is controlled very smartly as they are stir fried in mustard oil that not only enhance the taste but also control the spice level to some extent. Another thing is that I have used two types of green chilies. As taken 90-95% of green chillies, which were less and moderately spiced and added only 5% of very hot green chilies.. This spice percentage is taken considering our food habits and spice level that can be enjoyed without affecting our health... You can change the percentage and select green chillies according to your taste and food habits...
