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┬áchutney’s┬áand also use these┬áin 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┬áleads to an early spoilage.To avoid my green chillies from spoiling , I remove the steam┬áone by one without washing them (you can pluck the stem gently with hand also and ensure you don’t┬áover pull it, you should be able to see the whiter part underneath). I just clean them with the kitchen napkin that’s┬áit. After removing the steam I store these in an air┬átight plastic┬ábox┬á or in a ziplock bag.
My green chillies remain in good condition without spoiling┬áfor about 2 weeks or more┬áin the refrigerator.
Try this to believe it, it surely works !!!!
