This pickle takes me back to my childhood when my granny used to make this quick pickle often. Or better I should say that she always kept this pickle in the refrigerator as a backup plan to her sudden spicy pickle craving. Whenever she found the food uninteresting to her tastebuds, she ate this pickle. But now as a grown up I also love this pickle. Not too much, just a little addition of this pickle can make your food flavor bursting. If you like chilies then you don’t want to miss out on this one.
Rajasthani Mirchi ke Tipore – Instant Chili Pickle is a very famous popular Rajastani delicacy, and this is a must in any Rajasthani thali (a platter full of regional delicacies). Any Rajsthani Thali in incomplete without this pickle.
This delish recipe does not require so much effort and time, and can be prepared in less than 15 minutes. If you do not prefer to eat too much hot chilies, try to make this dish with mildly hot chilies. Green chilies cooked with spices give this recipe an unforgettably unique flavor.
