Dry grind 1 cup mustard seeds in a grinder ,seive it again dry grind them.Even if the mustard powder is a little coarse enough, no problem.
One day before preparing pulihora avakai,place mustard powder in a dry bowl,and pour piping hot boiled water 1/2 cup in to the mustard powder and mix well.Then place the bowl with mustard powder and water in the sun for a few hours until the powder mixture is dried completely.For every one hour mix the powder well with a dry spoon.This makes the water to dry soon.

After 10 mins remove the lid and mix the pickle thoroughly well with oil and seasoning.
Let it settle,for a week days outside,then store in a fridge.In India we keep them outside only,they remain normally,until unless there is shortage of salt and oil.But in other countries due to climatic conditions and centralized A/C we cant give guarantee.

Very tasty with rotis and rice.
