Gujarati achaar masala

Gujarati achaar masala
Today a Gujarati friend invited a few of us for lunch and she got this absolutely yummy masala out that had killer looks. Tried a pinch and it was absolutely fiery! Loved it so much that we were discussing how to source it. A friend sent the picture of it's ingredients and I was soon surfing the net to get more information. With what was available I made this one! Absolutely gorgeous ! Can be used not just for pickles but in raitas, salads,tandoori , dal, stuffed karelas n brinjals, sprinkle over sabzi for extra zing or mix with curd as a chutney. Looks like everyone has used this and knows about it except me ! Sharing this recipe.
5-6 red chillies 
1 tbsp degi chilli powder
9-10 pepper corns
1/4 tsp hing
1 heaped tsp methi
2 heaped tsp yellow mustard
1/2 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp salt 
2 tbsp salt
In a mixie grind all the ingredients to coarse powder.
Heat oil and cool.
Mix all the spices to oil and keep. Add more chilli powder if you like it spicy. 
It shall get that fiery red color with time. 
Sprinkle as you like.
Just sweat the sinuses out!
