What is Green Chilli Paste?

One of the most appropriate ways of using and preserving green chilies is by making green chilli paste. It is very easy, simple and quick to make. And it comes very handily when required. There are plenty of recipes that call for green chili paste. Also, there are recipes for dishes with a smooth texture. For all such recipes, green chilli paste should be used instead of chopped chilies. The best part is that for making the paste the seeds, which are considered harmful for health. The green chili paste can be refrigerated and used for 12-15 days. If frozen, the same can be used for 3-4 months. You can also keep the green chili paste submerged in oil instead of refrigerating it. This keeps the paste good for up to one week. Make your life easier with the homemade paste and purees.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Homemade Green Chili Paste

Generally, ginger-green chili paste is prepared because most of the recipes ask for this one. However, I prepare the two pastes to separate because I add chili paste at an early stage of the recipe and ginger paste I add a bit later. Also, many recipes don’t call for ginger, so only green chili paste is required. Here are all the ingredients required to make green chili paste:

Green Chilies: A variety of green chilies is available in the market throughout the year. Make green chili paste of the chilies you like to use in your day to day cooking. I use not0 too hot, not too bland variety of green chilies.

Salt: Salt helps in the grinding process as well as helps to maintain the shelf life of the paste.

Oil: I have seen people and recipes using vinegar and water to make the green chili paste. However, I like to add oil, as much required for the purpose of grinding. No vinegar, no water.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
