one of those lazy days where it was only raining and making the mood go grey. I
planned to go for a ride but then the constant drizzling was so irritating I thought ahh stay back home and
cook something to brighten up the mood : )
had lately made a spicy Chili pickle and I had been drooling seeing the chilies
all the time so I thought okay; now or never.
excellent recipe by an extra ordinary person my dearest Sis Ruhina Hashmi :)
loves experimenting and making new recipes. Many may know her as ElZaA, she runs
her Website and a successful group in face book.
you my dearest for this lovely recipe, a “keep forever” recipe for sure!
followed the recipe exactly, just did a small change, I added garlic pods, used
a lemon as had no lime at home but I had the organic one as it is important to
see that the skin is also being used and
the normal lemons are often sprayed with
so much pesticide that eating their peel can be harmful.
some of my organic red chilies from my plant I have in my balcony and added the red chili
flakes in the spices as I cannot pass by them : )
I will write down her exact recipe, just in my
words. The names are also given in English.

nigella seeds till you get a nice fried aroma
-let them cool down a bit and then crush them in a
-I wanted to have it done so I processed them twice
and left them a bit coarse
-now add this to the chili bowl
-heat 2 cups of oil till it is hot, don’t let burn
just as you see the smoke arising that’s perfect
now pour this onto the chili mixture and mix all well
-fill up your glass jar with it so that the oil is
above all the chili
-You can enjoy it either immediately as I did or let
it stay 2 days in a sunny place and then use it.
*Just a note, I
took a plastic bowl and mixed all in it but as I poured the hot oil, I changed
the bowl and took a metal one as the hot oil would have made holes in it so be
Make and enjoy the spicy pickle
