Green chillies are popular and extensively used in India cooking. They are essentially used mostly for savoury dishes like curries, dals, breads and appetizers. A simple and chatpata tadka given to a spicy masala dal or dal fry consists of green chillies for flavouring the dish. You can’t imagine of Indian cooking without a dash of green chillies. They are used in various forms either slit, sliced, chopped, diced or crushed.
Green chillies give a punch to a simple upma or to making a spicy biryani. It is an important star in Indian cooking and this spice is grown almost throughout the year hence there is seldom any scarcity of green chillies. Green chillies are available fresh, flaked, in sauce, bottle or pickled. It is one simple and humble ingredient that can spice up any bland meal with its taste and flavours.
Capsaicin is a substance in green chillies that occurs naturally, giving them their spicy flavour. The hotter the chilli, the more capsaicin it contains. The hot green chillies can enhance the flavour of any food. It is used to spice up various types of chutneys like coconut chutney, green chilli chutney, green chilli sauce, mint coriander chutney, peanut chutney, green chutney for chaat, chilli mustard pickle etc.
Generally the hara masala (green masala) used for various non-vegetarian and vegetarian recipes is spiced with green chillies. Mirchi ka salan is one very popular dish and an essential accompaniment served with biryani. This is exceptionally made from a variety of green chilli. Most of us know that green chillies are heat generating but little do people know about the health benefits of green chillies.
They are low in fats and cholesterol and rich in vitamin A and vitamin C. Green chilies are a good source of dietary fibre which helps to remove toxins from the body and prevent constipation. Green chilies contain a chemical called Capsaicin which improves the digestive system and also dissolves the blood clots. Tip – Green chillies vary in level of spice and aroma.
For this preparation, you first need to slit the chillies vertically and remove the seeds and stem with a spoon – as this is where most of the spice originates from, but if you can take a lot of heat, then just leave them in. But still just slit so that the masala can go inside while cooking.
From reading this content, it should be clear now that green chillies too are good for health. But if you are suffering from stomach ulcers or burning sensation in heart then avoid eating this as it can lead to some discomfort. Other’s, do try this and enjoy the spicy flavours.
