Khatta meetha mirch ka achar

Khatta metha mirch ka achar is an instant sweet and sour green pepper that is very tasty and excellent with chapati, fulka or roti.

I’m a pickle, and that’s no exaggeration. Give me a cucumber and a foulka, a yogurt and I am a happy woman. Pickles are the best accompaniment to Indian food. Be it the indispensable Andhra Avakai or a simple pickle with green chilli in the style of North India. I make three versions of green pepper pickles. One of them is instant sweet and sour green pepper aka hatta meta mir kachar. It smells good on your lips!

This sweet and sour green pepper recipe is one of the easiest and fastest to make. It’s an instant stain that doesn’t have a long life. I am a very observant cook, especially when preparing pickles, and I take all the necessary precautions during the pickling process. But you don’t have to worry about making this sweet green pepper cucumber, because it’s an instant version. It’s almost like making a sabji or a curry every day. The cucumber should be ready within 4 to 5 days, even if refrigerated. It’s so good it doesn’t last long. At my house, we were done in less than 3 days.

I’m sharing some photos of the cucumber making process. A detailed recipe for hatta meta, mirror ka achar, can be found at the end of this post.


Fresh green peppers must be washed, destemmed and dried. Cut into pieces and set aside.

Heat the mustard oil in a saucepan until hot. Put out the flame, wait a few seconds. Add the mustard, cumin and fennel seeds. After sprinkling the mustard seeds, add the asafoetida.

Immediately add the green chilli pieces. Light the fire and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder and chili powder and mix well. Thanks for the five minutes.

Add the jaggery and tamarind syrup and simmer over low heat.

Once the consistency is thick and the green peppers are soft, turn off the heat.

Khatta metha mirch ka achar is one of those culinary treats that can be prepared quickly to brighten up a dull and uninteresting day. This cucumber is all about the balance of flavors. It has a distinct spicy flavor with pronounced sweet notes and a subtle whisper of spice. You can eat it with chapati, paratha, stuffed parathas like aloo paratha, fulka and tea snacks like math.

Key to making the perfect hatta meta mirror ka achar recipe

It all depends on the kind of green pepper you use to prepare the Hatta Metha Mirror Ka-Ahar recipe. Choose fresh green peppers that are well puffed up and not bruised. Choose green peppers with moderate heat, such as the Bhavnagri or Athana varieties. Don’t use the fine, dark green variety, which is usually very spicy.
Mustard oil is best for this cucumber, but you can use any cooking oil except olive oil.
Tamarind and banana are essential ingredients. The green peppers should be cooked in a mixture of spicy tamarind and melted jaggery, which brings out the flavor of the green peppers. As the green chili cucumber cools and rests for a few hours, the flavors develop.
