Green chilli pickle ,almost instant pickle for chilli lovers,which goes well with a combination of rice and any dal.For this pickle pick chillies that are medium hot or milder.As far as I know the smaller the green chilli size ,the hotter it is.Here I picked the thin ,long ones( the Indian variety)

Tamarind pulp – 1cup
Salt to taste
Mustard powder – 2tsp
Fenugreek seeds pwd - 1 tsp
Sesame seeds pwd – 3tsp
