Pickled Green Chillies

Having just returned from far east, I brought with me some big fresh green chillis. To me they're prized commodities as they're expensive over here in the supermarket. In order to preserve them, I decided to pickle them. I like pickled green chillies especially served with wanton noodles, hor fun and etc. This is a simple recipes to follow.

Pickled Green Chillis
  • 300 gm fresh green chillies-must be firm to the touch
  • 200 ml distilled white vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • 100 ml water
  • 1 litre of boiling water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  1. Clean, de-seed and slice the green chillies. Pour the boiling water over the green chillies and let it blanch for about 5 minutes or so. Drained.
  2. In a pan, bring to boil the vinegar, 100ml water, sugar, salt together.
  3. Place the blanched chillies in jam jar. Pour over the ingredients from (2) over the chillies. Seal the lid of the jam jar.
  4. The pickled chillies will be ready to eat in 2 days.
