Green Chili, Ginger & Raw Turmeric Pickle

A very simple and easy pickle during winters. This is one of my favourite pickles in winter. It is a mixture of big & long green chillies, some ginger and some raw turmeric with spices and mustard oil. Raw turmeric has many health benefits. Especially during winters. And green chillies also have. In this pickle, all the ingredients have so much health benefits.
