Simple Mooli n Hari Mirch Ka Achaar (Radish n Green Chilli Pickle)

Pickles in India are usually made at home. They are made without any additional preservatives as salt and oil works as preservatives. My mom makes a variety of pickles that I have always relished from childhood.  Always wondered if I will be able to make pickle.  I have been hesitant so always used ready made.  This is the first time I have made this pickle which is the simplest one out of all.



  • 1 white radish ( mine was a big size, depending on the size of the mooli)
  • 7-8 green chillies slit lengthwise
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 tsps yellow mustard
  • 4-5 tbsps vegetable oil ( mustard, olive or vegetable)


First wash and peel the radish using a peeler, then cut into desired shape.  Also slit the green chillies lengthwise.  In a m mixing bowl, add salt, yellow mustard and oil.  Mix well.  Let it sit outside in the sun covered in the mixing bowl or in a clean glass airtight bottle or jar.

After a couple of days, put the pickle in the fridge.  Enjoy with your meal..
