Lemon Green Chilli Pickle
Lemon Green Chilli Pickle


Its not a recipe with lots of ingredients and masalas, instead, its a very simple recipe with a very few ingredients. I actually bought these chillies for making chilli pakoras. But as these were very spicy, so I thought of making pickle of it.

My muma used to make this Lemon Green Chilli Pickle. I always had it in breakfast with my favorite missa parantha and a cup of tea.

And the most interesting part of this Lemon Green Chilli Pickle is that we do not use oil in it.

So let us begin with the recipe of Lemon Green Chilli Pickle.

Ingredients:

150 grams Green Chillies

8 Lemons

Shake it at regular intervals so that the liquid in it would be mixed with all the lemons and green chillies.

Day 2 - The next day you will notice the liquid in the jar has increased. Its because of the salt and the lemons have released water. Shake it at regular intervals.
