  • 1.25 cup Kashmiri Chili Powder
  • 1/3 cup Methi Kuria/Crushed fenugreek seeds
  • 2 tbsp Whole peppercorns/ Sabut Kali Mirch
  • 1 CUP Rai Kuria/ Crushed yellow mustard seeds
  • 3/4 cup Salt
  • 2 tbsp Asafoetida/ hing
  • 2 tbsp Turmeric/ Haldi
  • 1 cup Sesame oil or Mustard oil
  • 1/4 cup Fennel Seeds/ Saunf coarsely crushed


  • Heat oil in a pan till smoking point.
  • Let it cool down a bit till it comes to slight hot temperature.
  • Take all the spices in a thali/ plate and pour the medium hot oil over the spices
  • Mix well .and keep aside for an hour.
  • Store in a glass jar when cool down completely and use when needed.


  1. For 1 cup chopped vegetable take approx.3 t.s masala and 3 t.s oil to make a instant pickle.
  2. Use kashmiri chili powder to give a nice and bright colour to your pickle. If you are using the regular chili powder then use 3/4 cup.
  3. fennel/ saunf is not used in Gujrati masala, but gives a nice flavour and taste to any pickle,so I love to add this in my spice mix.
  4. *Rai kuria- split and dehusked mustard seeds
  5. *Methi kuria -coarsely ground fenugreek seeds-
