Lovely green chilli pickle!


  • Green chillies, long and thick 1 kg
  • For the filling:
  • Salt 200gm
  • Mustard seeds powdered 200 gm
  • Turmeic powder 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Aniseed(saunf), coarsely powdered
  • Onion seeds (kalonji) 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida – a pinch
  • Lemon juice


  1. Wash and wipe dry the green chillies. Make a vertical slit in the centre of each chilli.
  2. For the filling, mix all the spices together. Add the lemon juice and mix well again.
  3. Fill each chilli with a generous amount of this mixture. Store the stuffed chillies in a n opaque jar and keep in the sun for 4-5 days. Shake the jar twice every day.
  4. The chillies will become softer as the days go by, but can be consumed as soon as the filling sticks to the chillies.
