INSTANT RED CHILLI PICKLE


Ingredients:
Red Chillies (fresh) ...... 15 - 20
Methi seeds ................ 1tsp
Cumin seeds ............... 1 tsp
Mustard seeds ............. 1 tsp
Asafoetida ................... abig pinch
Turmeric powder ....... 1/2 tsp
Salt ..................... to taste
Vinegar .............. 2 tbsp
Oil..................... 2-3 tbsp
Method:

1. Wash the red chillies and cut them into small pieces.
2. Grind the methi and cumin seeds coarsely.

3. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the asafoetida and mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the chillies, salt and saute them a little.
4. Now add the turmeric powder, salt and the crushed methi and cumin seeds. Add the vinegar and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
5. The pickle is ready to be consumed. I store it in the refrigerator but I guess it may stay good for a few days if kept outside.
