Green Chili Sauce- Hot, tangy,quick and easy green chili sauce
When ever I think about making any pickle, chutney or any kind of condiment green chilies came first in my mind..I love them in all forms -raw, pickled,fried ,stuffed, sauce and even in my regular parathas I love to put few green chili roundels . I inherited this habit from my grandmother and my father who can’t have their meals with out a fresh green chili in their plates:)
I make so many variety of pickle and chutnies regularly –Apple chutney , Kiwi Mint chutney, U.P Special Bhune Tamatar Ki Chutney , Plum chutney, Amrood Pudina Ki Chutney are among the favourites of my family
Few days back I made some snacks and wanted to serve some thing tangy and spicy with that but was in hurry so just tried this easy and jhatpat green chili sauce and it taste so fresh and tangy that every one just loved it. To make this green chili sauce try to use a combination of mildly hot chilies with few hot chilies or use as per your preference.If you find it too hot then can increase the quantity of sugar.
It can be served with snacks ,parathas, sandwiches, pulao ,it taste great with almost every thing. Addition of boiled potato is optional as it is added to give some thickness and body to the sauce but I usually make it without the addition of potato. If you want to reduce the taste of vinegar then just give it a boil on medium heat . Do try this tangy and so easy to make sauce and give me your feedback.
