Green chillies de seeded and slit 40 grams + 1 big bell pepper

Green cardamom powder 1/4 tsp

Method :

Step 1
Wash,de seeded and cut green chilies. Heat water in a non stick pan. Add alum and green chillies and cook for 2-3 minutes. Strain the chillies. Repeat this process 3-4 times. This will mellow down the pungent taste of green chilli.



Step 2
Drain and grind the chillies coarsely. Heat ghee in a non stick pan, add semolina and sauté for a minute.


Step 3
Add the ground chillies and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Sauté properly.. This will reduce  tangy flavor of chillies. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
