Cut the chicken into very small pieces. Mix them with red chilli powder and  salt and keep aside. Heat oil in a saucepan and fry the chicken pieces till they turn golden brown. Remove them from the pan and keep them aside. Splutter mustard and cumin seeds in the remaining oil. Add ginger, garlic and curry leaves and stir them well. Add pickle powder, turmeric powder, vinegar and water and continue stirring. Finally add chicken pieces, sugar and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Transfer the pickle to a clean jar after it cools.It tastes great with dosas, idllis and rotis, not to mention rice. And what more- unlike most other traditional pickles, it can be eaten right from the day it is prepared.
