TIPS & NOTES
- The Peppers. You can ruse any chili peppers for this recipe. Most chilli pickle recipes will call for green chilies, but you can do this with any color peppers and any heat level.
- The Oil. Use a neutral oil for this recipe as not to affect the flavor of the seasonings and the chili peppers. Mustard oil is a nice compliment to the mustard seeds, though any vegetable oil will do. Olive oil will work, but has a more distinctive flavor.
- Asafoetida. Asafoetida is a popular spice used in Indian cooking. If you have a hard time finding it, a combination of onion and garlic powders if a very good substitute.
