Green Chili Powder
Mirchi Powder / Fresh Green Chili Powder is fabulous ! Once you start
using this you will forget the commercial red chili powder which is only
fire hot while the green chili powder is not only more hot but has a
wonderful aroma to it , which does great stuff to your food. Sprinkle it
over daals , curd , add it at the end to your cooking and you will see
the amazing results this chili powder produces.I add it to my popcorn !
fresh green chiles , wash and dry them in the sun - this takes 7 days
or so for them to dry out totally , I then leave them in a warm oven -
take the temperature to 50C place these chilies in and turn the oven off
,2-3 hours later take the chilies out , remove stems , and zap them a
few times to make a sand like powder or a finer one if you like.
chili powder is 2-3 times stronger than the commercially sold red chili
powder and flavors everything beautifully ! Go for it !
