Winter Special – Green Chilli Pickle

Hello, my Foodie friends !!

I bring to you another winter favourite in Green chilli pickle. Though green chillies are in season throughout the year,

green chilli pickle

is always made in winters. Guess why….because of the magic ingredient Lemons.

This pickle needs to be made with spicy green chillies, otherwise, it just won’t safeguard you against winter.


Hot green chillies keep you warm. You can relish this with Roti and rice but it goes best with plain triangular paratha
