How to grow green chilies at home: 

This is by far the simplest and easiest green chili pickle recipes ( हरी मिर्च का अचार) around with homegrown chilies. Besides, the oil-free chili pickle soaked in vinegar is yummy and healthy. The pickle without oil has probiotics and is not spicy. Besides, learn how to grow green chili at home easily (हरी मिर्च कैसे उगाएं/hari mirch kaise ugaye).
I was never too fond of green chili; however, it surely has health benefits. The reason you should include green chili in your meal plans is that it triggers salivation due to its heat. The more you salivate, the better the absorption and digestion of food in your stomach. However, if you have acidity issues, you must refrain from pickles.
Nevertheless, pickling green chili and ginger is another way to preserve these beauties from nature's garden.

Moreover, since apple cider vinegar is a natural preservative, the oil-free chili pickle stays good forever. However, make sure you use a sterilized glass jar for pickling ginger and green chili. I do not use synthetic vinegar and substitute it with apple cider vinegar for its umpteen number of benefits. I have written an entire piece on apple cider vinegar on my blog and how it helps deal with a number of problems.
