lal mirch ka acharlal mirch ka achar | stuffed red chilli pickle | lal mirch ka bharwa achar with step by step photo and video recipe. stuffed pickle recipes are very common across india and are mainly used as a taste enhancer. it can be made with myriad types of vegetables, but the most common ones are chillies. one such stuffed chilli based pickle is traditional rajasthani stuffed red chilli pickle.

i am not a huge fan of pickle recipes, to be honest. even though i have posted quite a few pickle recipes till now, i have always preferred to have something less spicy. having said that, i make these kinds of pickles quite often. my husband just loves it and he likes it with paratha or dal rice combination. his personal favourite is simple mango pickle or midi uppinakayi (in kannada), but he likes to mix and match and like variations. the other favourite is stuffed or bharwa pickles. he likes the same masala in bitter gourd, okra, chillies and even the eggplant based ones. basically i make the masala or spice mix in bulk and use it whenever i have to prepare either one of these. you may very well do the same in your house too.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some more tips, suggestions and variations to stuffed red chilli pickle. firstly, try to get a juicy, thick, fresh and tender red chilli for such pickle recipes. you may notice the bright red colour while shopping and that should be the ideal for this recipe. secondly, as the chillies are rested and aged, the taste of the pickle improves. hence once the stuffing is done, store it for a minimum of 7 days till it is used. lastly, the spice mix used in this recipe can be used for other vegetable-based stuffed pickle. my personal recommendation is brinjal pickle, but you may choose as per your choice.
