Athela Jalapenos Marcha - Pickled Jalapenos Chilies - Indian Style

Here in the US, whenever you go to Swaminarayan temple, they sell a lot of snacks, sweets and other items, one of it is, Athela marcha, but its not from regular chilies, they use, Jalapenos to make this. I used always buy that whenever I am in that area, but for one small box and few chilies in it, cost more. So after two times, I stopped buying it and start making it at home. It's so easy to make and you can buy more jalapenos and make more pickle than store brought.

The recipe is nothing fancy, Wash, cut jalapenos and add it in spilt mustard seeds (rai na kuria) , salt, turmeric powder and done.  Go ahead and make this and enjoy it. Since we are cutting all the veins of Jalapenos there is no spiciness left. So you can enjoy it without worrying about spice.

Ingredients : 

9 Jalapenos
2 Tbsp Spilt Mustard seeds (rai na kuria)
1 tsp. Turmeric Powder
Salt as per taste
3 Tbsp Olive oil or Mustard oil or canola oil ( as per your wish I took Olive oil )

Method : 

In a container, mix oil, salt, turmeric powder and rai na kuria and keep it aside.

Cut the top of the Jalapenos and cut it in half. If your hands are sensitive, wear rubble gloves and work with Jalapenos.

Cut the seeds and veins from the jalapenos, wash it nicely.

Now depend upon jalapenos, cut 3 - 4 long matchstick slices and cut all of it.

when it's done, mix in oil mixture and keep it for 2-3 hours and it will be ready to eat.

You can enjoy it with your lunch or dinner.
