Yellow Mustard Pickle


Hi everyone. Welcome back. Hope you enjoyed lots in the previous week by making healthy and tasty goodies for friends and family. Today I’ll be showing you all the process of making yellow mustard pickle. It is a delicacy of northern India especially Bihar and is quite fun. It’s abundantly found in India and used for making mostly curries, fish curry especially, but in my ancestral family, we relish this particular version of it as a pickle or chutney, both. Its slightly tangy and is liked by all in my house. It can be served as a dip to go with chapatis, paranthas, dhoklas, can be used as a spread for sandwiches and rolls and can be had with pakoras and fried snacks. So let’s start to make it. The recipe is as follows–


  1. Yellow mustard-250 gm
  2. Vinegar-1 cup
  3. Salt-According to taste
  4. Red chilly powder-1 tbsp
  5. Turmeric powder-1 tsp
  6.  Asafoetida or Hing-A pinch
  7. Five Spice or Panchphoran-1 tsp
  8. Mustard Oil-2 tbsp
  9. Dry Red Chillies-3 pieces


Step 1

Take yellow mustard and whole red chilies in the given amount and soak them in vinegar overnight.

Step 2

The next day grind them slightly coarsely.

Step 3

Step 4
