Chilli Pickle

When I was in Pune at Smita's place she offered me "Phodni Chi
Mirchi" made by Kusum Maushi, her aunt and boy, did I hog on it!

So itwas my duty, nay solemn duty to make it here in Goa.

Between the taste I recollected and the phone calls to Smita I
recreated the recipe.
Then as per perdition of Smita Bai I found the
recipe that I had jotted down in the now numerous books that I seem to
have collected.
Here is the authentic recipe as dictated by Maushi.

¼ kg chillies,
1 cup red mustard
2tsp methi
¼ cup salt
1tsp hing
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 cup lime juice
1 cup oil
1. Wash and dry chillies cut into pieces.
2. Fry methi/fenugreek in oil, drain and powder.
3. Powder mustard, add lime juice and run the mixer.
4. Add the turmeric powder, hing salt and mix.
5. Add chillies.
6. Make a phodni( Oil And mustard )cool and pour over the mix.
Store in fridge.
