1. Wash the chillies well to remove any dirt, then wipe it with a clean cloth
2. Cut the stems of the chillies and remove the seeds from inside using a knife or spoon
3. Wipe the chillies once again with a clean cloth and keep them in the sun for 4-5 hours so that the remaining moisture can be removed. Removing the moisture is important so that the shelf life of the pickle can increase.
4. For the stuffing, dry roast all the whole spices mentioned in the ingredient list. Dry roast till they become aromatic and very slightly golden. This takes around 2 minutes.
5. Transfer the spices to a plate and cool it down completely. Once cooled, grind to a coarse powder.
6. Heat good quality mustard oil till it reaches smoking point. Keep aside till it becomes lukewarm.
7. To this powder add the remaining spices mentioned in the ingredient list. Mix everything well.
8. Once the oil is lukewarm, add a spoonful each time to the spice powder and mix it well. Keep adding oil till the spices reach binding consistency.
9. Stuff the chillies with the spice mix.
10. Place the stuffed chillies in a clean glass jar and pour the remaining lukewarm oil on to the chillies.
11. Close the lid tightly and keep this jar in the sun for at least 4-5 days. This will make the chillies soft and edible and increase the shelf life of the pickle.
12. Enjoy this pickle along with your favourite Indian meals.
