Get ready to elevate your dining experience with the piquant allure of homemade Bombay/Naga Chilli Pickle!

Embark on a culinary adventure with this spicy Pickle recipe, a fiery delight for spice enthusiasts. Bursting with bold flavors, this pickle is a staple in Bangladeshi cuisine, elevating everyday meals to new heights.

Follow the step-by-step guide to create this tantalizing condiment that adds a kick to your rice and curry dishes.


  • 100g Bombay or Naga Chillis
  • Deshi Garlic (Keep the skin)
  • 1 cup Mustard Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Panch Phoran (Five Spices)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • A small piece of Tamarind
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2/3 tablespoons Sugar (adjust to taste)


Step 1: Preparing Chillis


Wash and thoroughly dry the chilis. Ensure they are completely moisture-free to prevent mold in the pickle.
Slit the chilis lengthwise, creating a pocket for the masala.


Step 2: Preparing Mustard Oil

Heat the mustard oil until it reaches its smoking point.
Let it cool to room temperature. This reduces the pungency of the oil.


Step 3: Cooking the pickle

Mix the tamarind pulp, turmeric powder, salt, and sugar to create a thick, consistent paste.
Stuff each chili with this mixture, ensuring they are well-coated.


Step 4: Tempering with Panch Phoran and Cumin

In a separate pan, heat a tablespoon of the cooled mustard oil.
Add Panch Phoran & cumin, and let it splutter.
Pour this tempering over the stuffed chilis.



Step 6: Maturing the Pickle

Place the stuffed chilis in a clean, dry glass jar.
Pour the remaining mustard oil over the chilis, ensuring they are fully immersed. Seal the jar tightly.

Keep the jar in direct sunlight for at least 5-7 days. This allows the pickle to mature. Shake the jar daily to ensure an even coating of oil and masala.


This Bombay/Naga Chilli Pickle bursts with bold, fiery flavors. The combination of mustard oil, Panch Phoran, and tamarind creates a unique taste profile.

The spice level is intense, making it a perfect accompaniment for bland rice and curry dishes. The infusion of flavors enhances the overall meal experience, turning an ordinary lunch or dinner into a taste extravaganza.

I hope you enjoyed the recipe. Try it if you are a spice lover.
