Hari Mirchi ke Tipore | Instant Green Chili pickle

Sharing is caring!

Hari Mirchi ke Tipore is a quick and easy Rajasthani sabji made using green chilies. It is also called an Instant Green Chili Pickle and stays good for a couple of days.

It is best served as a side to your main dish, in a thali, or best as travel food. It goes well with simple roti, paratha, or puris. 

Mirchi ke Tipore as a travel food

This pickle can be stored outside in hot and humid weather for a couple of days and hence it is best as a travel food. I remember my mom making this a lot, especially for our 2-day long train journeys to the north. Love spicy and hot food, and this used to be one of my favorite sabji. I used to simply spread the masala on the roti or puri, roll it and enjoy the bread as finger food. That is how one eats while traveling. Right?

Pair this combination with some dahi/yogurt which just has some salt and cumin powder and you have one of the amazing foods. Yes, this combination was a hit. I remember Dad getting down at train stations to get some fresh dahi. We then added some salt and cumin powder, sometimes even black pepper powder and we had the best meal.

Process of making Mirchi Ke Tipore

Making this sabji is easy too. All you do is a simple tadka in oil. If you are going to make it for travel or want it to be good for a couple of days outside, it is best to add a little more oil as it acts as a preservative. 

The chilies are added and then cooked for a few minutes. This mirchi is cooked until they are just done. It should have a crunch and not be mushy. So I would say you need 10 minutes from start to finish to make this Hari Mirchi ke tipore.

I decided to make this Rajasthani special Hari mirchi ki sabji for our Shhh current month theme which Seema from Mildy Indian announced. I had a few travel ideas in my mind, but they were already there on my blog. 
So I decided to go ahead with this Mirchi ke tipore when Preeti from Cakes & Curries gave me Fennel seeds and red chili powder as secret ingredients.

I gave her ajwain and milk as secret ingredients and she made this Ajwain Poori one of the musts during travel travels.
