Have you ever tried green chilli for your recipe?

Green chillies are the life and soul of the Indian Meal.

Indian food is incomplete without chilli.

Indians are raised with chilli so used to this chilli fruit that any food that lacks chilli is too bland.

Chillies add spice to Indian food.

Chillies are used with or without stalks, whole or chopped, with seeds are without seeds.

There is no Garam masala without green chilli. Here green chilli is blended with garlic and ginger.

Green chilli is never used in excess but just a touch of it is enough to make the dish spicy.

There is never a scarcity of green chillies since it’s grown throughout the year.

What does chilli taste like?

Chilli contains various degrees of an active element called Capsaicin.
