Recipe Notes

  • I have heated mustard oil so its raw taste goes away but you can add it directly too.
  • Always use dry utensils while making a pickle, make sure it doesn’t come in contact with water.
  • Never add hot oil in the green chillies else the chillies will get spoilt. Let it cool down completely and then add it.
  • You can replace white vinegar with same amount of lemon juice too.
