Method for Lal Mirchi ka achar

  1. Wash the red chillies and pat them dry completely. Remove the stems and cut the chillies into small pieces. If you prefer a milder pickle, you can remove the seeds.

  2. Heat a pan and dry roast mustard seeds, fennel seeds, and fenugreek seeds until fragrant. Allow them to cool and then grind them into a fine powder.

  3. In the same pan, heat the mustard oil until it starts to smoke. Then turn off the heat and allow it to cool to a lukewarm temperature.

  4. Combine the cut chillies, ground spices, turmeric powder, asafoetida, salt, sugar, vinegar, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Mix well.

  5. Once the oil is lukewarm, pour it over the chilli mixture and mix well.

  6. Transfer the pickle into a sterilized glass jar. Ensure there is enough oil to cover the chillies completely. Seal the jar tightly.

  7. Keep the jar in a sunny spot for about 7 days. Shake the jar gently once a day to mix the ingredients well.

  8. After 7 days, your Lal Mirch ka Achar is ready to be enjoyed. It can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated.
