Green Chilli Pickle

Years ago when I first bought a jar of green chilli pickle home everyone had loved it. I always wanted to make green chilli pickle, so, here it is, a brand new spicy pickle recipe from FOI. The beautiful yellow mustard with fresh green chillies pickled with lime juice and a dash of vinegar, absolutely mouth watering.
Here I have used less spicy, long fat green chillies. You can use any kind of green chillies you want. Or you can even ask your vegetable vendor for the best variety to make green chilli pickle. While making pickles there are a few things to keep in mind. A clean, dry kitchen counter, sterilized glass jars to store pickles. Of course you also need loads of patience, you will need to visit this green chilli pickle once every few days.

This green chilli pickle can be stored at room temperature because green chilli itself has acidic properties. One more thing to note is you can deseed and remove the heat releasing white membranes from the inside of the chillies.
Green chilli tastes best with any kind of paratha my favourite being gobhi paratha green chilli pickle combo. Try more pickle recipes from FOI, homemade lime pickle, yum, yum!

Notes
Remember to coarsely pound the mustard seeds if you are using a mixer

Use only lemon or only lime juice if you want, I like the flavour of both lime/lemon. Lime is sharper and lemon is more citrussy and rounder in flavour

Sea salt is preferred to make pickles as it tastes better and pickles last longer

Vinegar can be optional, it gives the tangy taste to the pickle

Do not forget to check the pickle and ensure to keep in bright place for the juices to start working

NOTE: Prep Time does not include pickling time
