ABOUT Curd Chillies (Dahi Ki Mirch) RECIPE

These are a very spicy and tangy accompaniment to curd rice or even plain boiled rice and dal. Infact these are a most loved combo with rice and dal or sambar down South in India. It is truly a heavenly indulgence for curd chilli lovers across the country. Made very easily, it only requires a standing time of drying in the sun for 4 to 5 days. This is an important step and cannot be overlooked.
