To make mustard chilli pickle, place the fennel seeds in a broad non-stick pan and dry roast them on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.

This oil free Indian pickle, not only is devoid of fat but also has a restricted quantity of salt. So it is a healthier option to devour with your favourite Indian meal. However, we do not recommend this pickle on a daily basis in huge quantities.

Tips for bhavnagri chilli ka achar. 1. While buying fresh chillies look for crisp unwrinkled ones. Make sure they are bright and unbroken. 2. Cut them into thick roundels so stuffing them becomes easier. 3. IF you are not comfortable stuffing the chillies with a spoon, you can stuff with your fingers as was done traditionally. 4. Store the pickle in a glass jar only. Storing in steel canisters or jars can change the taste of the pickle.

You can also try other oil-free pickles like Crunchy Vegetable Pickle or Baby Mangoes in Brine.
