    • Hi Utpal,
      Sorry for late reply. Hope already yummy achar. If you have not, please make sure that salt is always to taste, oil for pickle have to be enough to cover whole pickle (you can use less in cooking but you have to covering whole pickle when you are storing pickle in jar). And last not the least chilli , chilli to chilli varies heat level and everyone has different taste. So just use as much or as less chilli you want to add. Looking forward to hear from you and hope you forgive for late (I have good reason for my late reply).

      With regards,
