How to store green chillies for a long time ~ Tips & Tricks
While picking up my veggies I always tend to buy loads of greens which includes green chillies too. I use green chillies for making chutney’s and also use these in my regular cooking. Green chillies are something that I would want to have in my kitchen forever.
Earlier I use to face a lot of problem with my green chillies as they would spoil in 2 -3 days and I was just unable to store them for long. Then I found out this trick and it really worked well for me.
Green chillies have bacteria around the stem which leads to an early spoilage.To avoid my green chillies from spoiling , I remove the steam one by one without washing them (you can pluck the stem gently with hand also and ensure you don’t over pull it, you should be able to see the whiter part underneath). I just clean them with the kitchen napkin that’s it. After removing the steam I store these in an air tight plastic box or in a ziplock bag.
My green chillies remain in good condition without spoiling for about 2 weeks or more in the refrigerator.
Try this to believe it, it surely works !!!!
