It’s is called ghost [bhut] pepper for a reason. It’s hot! Super hot! So hot that you can’t handle it. Trust me. You have been warned.
So, if your good friend from Assam eagerly brings the bhut as gift for you from back home, you’re in a pickle. And that’s exactly what you make with it.
Here’s what you need to pickle bhut jolokia:
250 ghost chili peppers (bhut jolokia)
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
2 tbsp yellow crushed mustard seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp fennel seeds/sauf crushed
1 tbsp salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2cup mustard oil
1 dry glass jar
First things first, put on your gloves and keep them on till the bhut is trapped in a glass jar.
That’s it. Try and taste after 10 days. Oh, did I tell you it’s hot!
You have been warned 🙂
