Khandeko mula ko achar (Pickled radish)

Here is another pickle recipe I learned in Nepal.


  •     1 litre glass jar
  •     1/2 kg white radish cut into inch
  •     Garlic 50 gms chopped
  •     Ginger 20 gms chopped
  •     3 Green chilli chopped
  •     1.5 teaspoons Cumin powder
  •     1.5 teaspoons Coriander powder
  •     1.5 teaspoons Red chilli powder
  •     1.5 teaspoons Turmeric powder
  •     2 teaspoons Mustard seed powder
  •     2 teaspoons Salt
  •     2 teaspoons Mustard oil

I used a glass jar which came with 1kg honey estimating it’ll hold around 1 litre of water. The idea is to fill it with the ingredients with a bit of space to spare. The radish should fill about 80% of the jar and the ginger and garlic 10% with 10% empty. Chilli is to taste.

  • Cut the radish into 1/2 inch block and chop Garlic, Ginger and Green chillies and put them in a large bowl.

  • Put a clean wrap or plastic bag on the month of the jar and close it tightly so no air can enter.

  • Leave the jar where it can get direct sunlight.
  • Every few days, open the jar and move the tomatoes around. Close the jar, tightly.

mula ko achar (6)

  • The pickle will be ready in 4-5 days. Enjoy!
