A combination of spices can be mixed and ground together to make the Pickle Masala Powder which can be stored and used any time to make South Indian Pickles.

Fenugreek - 1/2 kg or 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds - 1 kg or 1 cup
Turmeric powder - 100 gms or 2 tbsp
Red Chillies - 2 kg or 2 cups

Spread all the ingredients in hot sun for about a day so that all the moisture goes off. (Alternatively, if the quantity is less the ingredients can be either roasted in a dry pan, or can be heated in microwave).

Large quantity can be ground in a flour mill. Small quantity can be ground in a mixer grinder to a fine powder. Store it an airtight container. This can be used for about 6 to 9 months.
