A very special,delicious and tangy Fresh Red Chili Pickle – Specialty Of Uttar Pradesh
Pickles are an integral part of Indian cuisine. There are numerous types of pickles made in each region and state of India . Raw mango pickle and chili pickle is the most loved among the whole lot of variety of pickles. Pickle are mainly of two types -first the yearly type and other are seasonal which are made in small batches as usually they have a short shelf life.
Red chili pickle is a very popular pickle of Banaras. It is also popular as bharwa laal mirch ka achar. This achar have a very long shelf life ,in fact I have never seen it spoiling by any chance. The process need time and patience as the red chilies are stuffed in a special way. The stem of red chilies are removed from the back side and then the prepared masala is stuffed inside with the help of a toothpick. The shelf life of that pickle is till it last in your pantry 🙂
I love banarasi mirch ka achar but as stuffed chillies have good amount of masala inside and now I am trying to avoid too much spicy food so have to try a different way to make this pickle. So when I spotted these fresh red chilies in the market I brought few and tried making this easy and simple style of pickle but with the same flavour and taste of banarasi lal mirch achar . Do try this pickle it turn out amazing !!
