Chilli Pickle 6 with White Mooli Radish

Mirch aur Mooli ka achaar

Geeta Gupta


This is a summer pickle in cold countries like UK, but a winter pickle in India. It is simple to make and quite tasty.


  • 250 gm green chillies

  • 250 gm. Mooli radishes

  • 1/2 cup fresh, shelled peas (optional)

  • 2 tbsp. mustard oil*

  • 1 tbsp. ground mustard or ‘rai’ seeds

  • 2 tsp. turmeric or huldi powder

  • 1 1/2-2 tbsp. salt, according to taste

  • *Mustard oil should always be heated to smoking point first and allowed to cool completely, before adding it to the pickle


  1. Wash green chillies and mooli radish and let it dry on a towel overnight. Water in pickle makes it go off quickly.

  2. Cut chillies into small pieces and mooli into small bite sized pieces.

  3. Place everything in a bowl and mix.

  4. Transfer to a jar, close lid and leave the jar in the sun for 4-5 days, turning it over and shaking it 1-2 times a day, to ensure even maturing. It is now ready to eat
