Chillies come together with a unique blend of spices, giving rise to a tongue-tickling accompaniment for any meal. Whether dhoklas or khichdi, just serve a little of this Green Chilli Pickle alongside the dish to give it a fiery touch.

A special blend of spices like soonth and carom seeds compensates for the reduction in salt, giving the same finger-licking effect as a salt-loaded one.

This yummy accompaniment can also be enjoyed by hypertensive people, in limited quantities and only occasionally.

A low-salt, low-sodium menu can also include other dishes like the Mili Jhuli Subzi and the Mooli Moong Dal .

Sweet, spicy and tangy at the same time... Good accompaniment for any meal. The salt was a little less but I think that''s because the recipe is meant for those with high BP.

I don't like Bhavnagari Chillies, when I prepared this recipe I liked it very much. It was spicy and tasty.
