This recipe is meant for those who love spice. We have however used a milder variety of chillies i.e. Bhavnagri chillies which are long thick green chillies. You can use the sharp small green chillies if you like.

Chilli roundels are sautéed with whole fenugreek seeds, cumin and turmeric to which lemon juice and sugar is added to balance the spice level.

Instant Chilli Pickle can be served as a side dish to the main course and snacks of any Indian cuisine.
