Homemade green chilli powder

Green chilli powder is an important ingredient in Indian cuisine. We use it to flavour stews, soups, meats, beans and snacks like roasted chickpeas.

You can prepare this powder by buying freshly picked green chillies, removing the stems, drying them in the sun and then grinding them into a powder.
