We use green chillies in almost all the recipes. This is a traditional green chilly pickle which I learnt from my friend. I love pickles very much. For this pickle we need slightly spicy green chillies and we use some masalas which makes the pickles very tasty. This pickle tastes well with curd rice. I have already posted North Indian Style Green Chilly Pickle also. But this is different from that.
