How to Make Moar Milagai or Dahi Mirchi

  • Wash and wipe the firm green chillies. Mix the salt to the curds and beat it to a smooth consistency.
  • Slit the chillies lengthwise, make sure you don't completely cut them off from their stalks.
  • De-seed the chillies if you want to.
  • Soak chillies in curds for about 3 to 4 days.
  • By then marination is complete and the chillies start to turn yellow.
  • Remove the chillies from the curd and dry in hot sun.
  • Put them back in the vessel with the curd at night.
  • Add some more curd if required.
  • Repeat the process for about 3-4 days.
  • The chillies are pale yellow by the time they have absorbed enough curd and are dried well.
  • Store these in an air tight container.
  • When required, fry these in medium hot oil.
  • Tastes best with curd rice.
