Sweet, Sour & Spicy Green Chili Pickle/How to make Khatta- meetha mirch ka achar

Reading and cooking have been my two hobbies since childhood. I used to read a number of comics, some subscribed and others borrowed. In addition to comics, two other magazines were also subscribed by my mother- Grihshobha and Sarita. I used to love Grihshobha because of its cookery section. I cut out all the recipes and by the time I grew up, I had a huge collection of recipes.

 Once, they published a recipe called sweet and sour chillies. My young brain was intrigued to know how chillies could be both sweet and sour at the same time. The moment I made it and presented it before my family members, it was a hit. In fact, a super hit. It became a regular among the pickles to be made. Even our guests were all praises for it.

When I got married, in my new home, no one had the taste for sweet pickles or chutneys except for gobi, gajar, shalgam pickle and sweet mango chutney. Since my marriage, I have made it only once when my lovely sister came back from America and asked for it.

Once my sweet little daughter went to my friend’s house and had sweet mint chutney, which was once my favorite. But I had stopped making as no one in my family had taste for it. Since then she keeps on demanding the same chutney. This made me realize that she has the same tastes like me. Now, I have a companion. So I thought of making this sweet and sour chili pickle, which she liked instantly. To my surprise, even my son liked it.

Here is the recipe from my sweet childhood.….
