Raiwara Marcha | Instant chili pickle | રાઈતા મરચા

Green chillies - 10 -12 or 100 gm,
Split mustard seeds - 2 tbsp,
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp,
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp,
Hot mustard oil - 1 1/2 tbsp,
Dry mango powder - 1/2 tsp,
Black pepper - 1/4 tsp,
Jaggery powder - 1/4 tsp,
Asafetida - 1/4 tsp,
Salt - 1/2 tsp.

Wash and dry chillies properly. Cut the stems and slit lengthwise and cut one inch long slice.

Slightly crush split mustard seeds using mortal and pastel.

Add fennel seeds and black pepper and mix well.

Transfer into a mixing bowl.

Add asafetida followed with hot mustard oil.

Cover and let it cool down for few minutes.

Now add salt, dry mango powder, turmeric powder and jaggery powder.

Mix well.

Add chopped green chillies and mix well.

Store into an airtight container and refrigerate it. Let it rest over night for better taste.

I am using Serrano peppers for less heat.
Fennel seeds and black peppers can be skipped.
Remove chili seeds if you wish.
No need to heat oil except mustard oil.
Dry mango powder can be replaced with lemon juice.
Prepare this pickle in small quantity & enjoy it  fresh.
Its an instant pickle so try to consume within 8-9 days.
