It’s vital to store this pickle at room temperature for two days. This will give the chillies enough time to marinate and soak up all the flavours.

Trivia Tadka

Athela Marcha literally means pickled chillies. It adds an instant kick of spiciness to any meal. Easy to make, this dish pairs particularly well with Khichdi or a Kathyawadi Thali.
