Mix Veg Green Chilli Pickle

Making pickle at home is a long process and for decades its only mom's work and now after wedding making it on my own was not something that I had even thought of. However once when the supply that I got from India exhausted, I had to buy them in that Indian Shop for the first time and then decided to do it myself than to eat some shop stuff which is called pickle huh....

This is the simplest of the pickle that one could make. Green Chillies are used for this preparation and therefore the colour would not be red or maroon.

Ingredients :
  • Lemon : Large size 6
  • Green Chillies : 12 Nos. (More or less as per taste)
  • Carrots : 2 Nos.
  • Ginger : 5cms
  • Salt
Method of preparation :
  • Wash all the veggie and dry them and ensure there is not moisture on the skin. 
  • Cut them into blocks/ slices as in the pic below. In an airtight container add one layer of veggies and 1 table spoon of salt then again a layer of veggies and salt, repeat it till you are done. 
  • Close the lid, shake it well and refridgerate it.


  • Day 1 take it out and give a nice shake do not open the lid. Repeat the same every day
  • Day 15 the pickle would be ready to eat. (The lemon would have turned Mustard colour by now)
If you feel that the pickle has to soak more then you chose to do so for more days till the lemon skin is soft. Choose lemon which has thin skin.

It would not be hot nor too salty, this does not need any oil or seasoning and would go well with Curd rice, Dhal rice, Sambar rice etc.

Optional : You can add Mangoes and bitter gourd also to this.
