Mirchi ke Tipore/Instant Chilli Pickle Recipe

imageMirchi ke Tipore – Peppery and tangy instant chilli pickle, which is often served as part of Rajasthani Thalis. I first tasted this dish at my in-laws place . My mother-in-law used to make delicious mirchi ke tipore . I have tried to emulate the flavor here.

One can use long thick chillies/ bhavnagri chillies for making mirchi ke tipore. It requires minimal effort to prepare it. In comparison to usual pickle recipes, this recipe uses much lesser amount of oil and salt and can be consumed immediately.


This authentic Rajasthani side-dish can really enhance the flavor of any lightly spiced simple meal as well. Mirchi ke Tipore can also be stored in refrigerator for a week.


  • 8 Long Thick Chillies
  • 1 Tsp Asafoetida
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
