Dahi Wali Mirchein

Dahi wali mirchien is a recipe which I recently read in a Food App in my mobile phone. I thought of trying it soon as I had bhavnagari chillies/ big chillies.
It tastes yum and is very easy to make.
Here is what we need:
  • Big Green Chillies/Bhavnagri chillies 4
  • Oil 2tbsp *note
  • Garlic finely chopped 4-6
  • Jeera  1tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Mustard seeds/Rai ¼  tsp
  • Onion Seeds/Kalonji  ¼ tsp
  • Fenugreek Seeds/Methidana just a little
  • Lemon juice – 1 ½-2 tbsp
  • Green chillies finely chopped – 1 small
  • Yogurt ¾ th cup
  • Finely chopped coriander leaves – 1 tbsp

 How to make Dahi Wali Hari Mirch:
  • Put one cut lengthwise in each of the green chillies and deseed them.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Shallow fry the green chillies and drain on a paper towel. Once done remove it on plate and add salt and lemon juice and marinate for one hour.
  • Meanwhile whisk the Dahi/ Curds/yogurt well.
  • In the remaining oil add jeera, when splutters add methidana,kalonji and garlic and stir until garlic is a little crisp now add finely chopped green chillies. Mix and make sure it doesn’t get burnt. Switch of the flame and add this tadka to the Dahi/yogurt.
  • Now add the marinated big green chillies as it is with the lemon juice and give the yogurt chilli mixture a light mix. Add extra salt only if necessary. 
  • Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
  • It is ready to serve.

Serve it with Rice or any simple pulav or just as a side dish with Dal.

The Actual recipe asks to deep fry the green chillies  but i have shallow fried it to reduce oil. you can deep fry it if you wish to.

Happy Cooking,
