Uppu Mirapakaya (Curd Chillies)

This is in continuation with my earlier post about the things which we do in summer and which is stored for a year and used through out the year.One such food is uppu mirapakaya/Majiga mirapakaya/curd chillies.It is a lengthy process but worth preparing it.It goes very well with hot rice and dal.And i love to eat with curd rice.Once again i didn't do this,my mom did for me.


Big green chillies 100gms
Butter milk 5 cups
Sun (yes you need bright hot sun for the chillies to dry)

Fresh green chillies

Slit the green chillies
Green chillies soaked in the buttermilk
Green chillies soaked for 24hours (they change colour)
Dry them in the hot sun on a cloth or on a plastic paper.It is best on the cloth because we share our terrace i had to opt for plastic paper as the cloth leaves mark on the terrace.
Evening get them back.And again dry them for another day on the plastic sheet.
Dry them in a similar way for another 2 days and they become crispy.

Store in a air tight container.

Deep fry them and serve it with hot rice and sambar.
