Sun Dried Chillies

BM # 17   Day 2

My Granny used to make these chillies..and I loved them even as a little girl. She bacame old and…mom never made such things. I started getting these from Mumbai from a South Indian store. The filling in those chillies had super duper salt!..you could say atleat triple of what is required, so finally gave up. I gave up on these till one day thought of trying them myself. They are very simple and add that zing to the food ,which is loved by the spice lovers. A simple daal rice menu..and two of these chillies crushed and sprinkled!.or a bite into them after every bite….!!!!....wow!!..my mouth is watering while writing.!!  You guys must try these and I bet you you shall get addicted.I restrict myself to eating two at a time .....though I can have...well...lets not think of that now !!
