Pickle or Achar is a very essential part of Indian cuisine and if you are too lazy to cook somedays like me, bread and pickle go very well!!
I love this pickle, it's extremely flavourful and it's so easy and fast to make. And you can store it and use it for up to 3 months.

Step 1: Ingredients!

So to make it easier I have divided the ingredients into 2 parts. For this pickle, you can use any kind of green or red chilli pepper depending on how hot you would like it.

Part 1

Fennel seeds - 3 tsp

Mustard seeds - 3 tsp

Fenugreek seeds - 1.5 tsp

Cumin seeds - 1tsp

Part 2

Red Chilli pepper - 100 gms

Mustard oil/ Olive oil - 4 to 5 tbsp

juice from one lemon

turmeric powder - 1 tsp

salt - 1.5 tsp to as per taste

Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp

Step 2: Wash the Peppers!

Wash thoroughly and dry the peppers using a cotton kitchen cloth.

Step 3: Slicing the Peppers!

Cut the peppers. You can slice them, cut them diagonally or linearly. Remove the heads.

Step 4: Preparing the Part 1 Ingredients!

So we are gonna take all four seeds fennel seeds, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and cumin seeds, and dry roast them.
1. Take a pan and put all the seeds in it. And then place it on the stove at medium temperature and roast them while stirring it for 3 to 4 minutes.

2. Now take all the roasted seeds and grind them using a grinder for a few seconds, so the mixture is coarse. If you don't have a grinder you can crush them using a rolling pin.

Step 5: Mix Everything!

Now take the prepared coarse mixture of seeds along with part 2 ingredients and mix them. And that's it, you did it!!

Step 6: Store!!

Store the pickle in a glass bottle and use it within 3 months!!

Enjoy the pickle!!

    Hey! Thanks a lot! Well i generally make it and start using and it lasts around 3 months and it's better if you keep it in refrigerator. I never tried storing it.

    Question 12 days ago

    Hello,
    Is there no type of vinegar necessary for these peppers to be preserved? I am looking for a recipe like this, as I have grown many types of peppers, and would love to keep them through autumn and winter. Thanks in advance!!

    Hi Jason,
    You can replace lemon juice with vinegar and refrigerate it but I don't think this will last more than 3 months without preservatives. I can ask my mother, there is another recipe, which can make the pickle last for more than 6 months. And you can always dry the peppers! :D
