Step 4

In a small bowl, add all the spices to the scooped veins and seeds and mix well to make a masala .

Step 5

Next, stuff all the green chillies with the this masala .You will have some left over masala. Dont throw it.

Step 6

In a dry glass container with a tight lid, put the cut stuffed green chillies. Tip in the leftover masala into the container.

Step 7

Next, pour mustard oil into container till the chillies are just covered.

Step 8

Now keep this glass container in a dry, sunny place for around 1-2 days till the chillies become pale green and soft.
