But if you do not like the taste of mustard oil, you can replace it with any other oil. 7. The mustard oil has to be heated till it smokes on a high flame and then cooled down completely to get the perfect flavour of the pickle. 8. Chilli powder can be adjusted as per your spice level. 9. Once the pickle is made, keep it at room temperature in a cool, dry place for 2 days and store in the refrigerator. This is for the keri to soak the flavours of the oil and masala well. 10. When you store the pickle in an air-tight container, some oil should float on top. This helps in preventing the pickle from spoilage. If you feel that there isn’t enough oil on top, heat some more and oil, cool it and add in the jar. 11. Always use a spoon to remove the pickle while serving.
