Frozen Green Chillies

One of the first things I do when my husband comes back from veggie-shopping is to chop all the excess vegetables and freeze them. I found that the green chillies frozen in this method makes my life easy when I am cooking. 

This will work only for people like me who don't like to see the chillies as is in the food served. :)

For BM #37, week 1, I have chosen to blog about some Kitchen Basics and this method of storing green chillies forms part of Day 1.
Frozen Green Chillies

Method Of Preparation -

Grind all the ingredients and divide equally in a small ice cube tray, cover with a cling wrap and freeze overnight.

Remove the cubed green chillies and store in a freezer-safe container or a zip lock cover and place in the freezer.

When required, use one cube or as needed.

  1. OMG! This is such an awesome way to store the green chilies. We have a huge garden and I end up chopping almost 10 kgs (I really mean that number) every season. This method will save me lot of time and energy :) Thanks a lot for sharing...

  3. That is a nice way to store the green chilies.

     
  4. i was not aware of the turmeric powder addition, usually i add a bit of oil and make one large chunk in freezer and then grate it as needed but this small ice cubes chunks is fabulous idea

  14. I thought my husband is the only one who buys the entire shop when sent on a grocery trip. :)This storing method seems to be a great idea when you have excess chilies.

  16. Great tip Harini. I usually freeze them as is, but grinding them makes life so much easier. Will be doing this with the next load of mirchi.
