Green Chilli Pickle/Andhra Chilli pickle

Andhra Green chilli Pickle, An authentic Andhra style recipe. Andhra is a state called for the hotness of spices, They cultivate so many varieties of chillies, Farming Chillies is a major role for the state. 

Usually we all run away form spicy foods, If some one wants to check the real spice taste in their food, they should switch to Andhra menu. I have few blogging friends from Andhra, they really tempts their dishes with spice ingredient. Here the authentic taste comes from the mustard seed and form mustard oil, hotness of chillies and tanginess of the lemon will tickle everyones taste buds to increase their platter quantity. 

I prepared this recipe for shhhhh cooking secretly, this month i was paired with Sharanya Palanishami of Sara’s Tasty bud.  she gave me Lemon and chilli for the Andhra cuisines theme. we love the Tanginess and Hotness of the pickle.

    Love the spices that you’ve added to the chili pickle. Gujju style is usually just a bit of mustard powder and jeera powder with lemon juice. Tell me about Andhra Cuisine, the first time we went to an Andhra restaurant, I had stomach burns as the food was really hot.

Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
