Green Chilli Pickle


Green Chilli Pickle is a delightful way to spice up any meal. This is an easy green chilli pickle or hari mirch ka aachar recipe. Somedays I crave for homemade pickles, my mom is an expert in instant pickles. She makes pickles out of everything, cauliflower, carrots, beets, garlic and ginger to name few. This green chilli pickle recipe is an instant one, gets ready in 2 days to start eating. I like to make these in small quantities so it can be consumed in 2-3 weeks.  It stays fresh for upto 4 weeks in room temperature. If you want a longer shelf life add more oil or keep it refrigerated.
