Today I am sharing a very simple and yet very tasty preparation straight from my Granny’s kitchen. Yes, it was at her place that I tasted this first and was hooked to it instantly. The mere thought of this preparation can make my mouth salivate any time. I have always marvelled, that how in olden days with few ingredients in hand, such tasty preparations were made and this preparation surely falls in that category. It’s an instant hit with every one who have tasted it and surely loved by my family too. It’s a perfect delight for people who love spicy food.
This can be served as a side dish or a chutney or a spicy raita. I personally love to eat this with hot paratha and rice. S can finish one bowl all by himself. Since it is very simple and quick to make even beginners can try this. Whenever I want to make this along with the every day rice and lentils, I keep the green chillies in the pressure cooker in a small bowl and pressure cook them and the remaining process is quite simple too….

Mirchi Cha Bharit
Preparation Time: 5mins | Cooking Time: 5mins | Makes:1/2cup | Serves:2-3 | Difficulty Level: Easy
4-5 green chilies (based on the spice level, mine were hot)
1/2 cup yogurt
a pinch of strong asafoetida/heeng
a pinch turmeric
salt to taste
1tsp mustard seeds
Steam the green chilies either in a pressure cooker or in a microwave and mash them immediately else they dry out fast. Mix the salt and yogurt and combine.
Heat oil and add mustard, asafoetida and turmeric, pour it immediately on the yogurt. The asafoetida should be of good quality as it enhances the flavour.
Mix and serve.
I keep the green chillies for steaming along with my rice and lentils in the pressure cooker. Saves my time and LPG.
