Instant Green Chili Pickles Recipe
Many people don't know that green chilies are good for your health. The truth is that this is one of the healthy and powerful ingredients we Indians use in our recipes. They are high in vitamin C and beta-carotene, they are a natural pain reliever, and they may help boost the immune system. They have very few calories and no cholesterol. Eating them in large quantities helps cool the body; they also aid in digestion. The spiciness of green chilies is truly appetizing.
Bite-Sized Spicy Side Dish
You can make green chili pickles instantly. In this recipe, you have to mix bite-sized chopped green chilies with a few other ingredients. You can use the pickle immediately.
