I first tasted these pickled green chillies in Singapore, because most of the time these are one of condiments served with Chinese fried rice. Not only fried rice, these pickled green chilies are accompanied by many other Chinese dishes such as stir fried noodles (Fried Bee Hoon).
Well, if you are a Sri Lankan you may expect a hot pickle. But, that’s not true. Instead, this green chili pickle is with mild hot, and sweet taste. You can even try this Green peppercorn pickle for new flavour!
We usually find this finger-length green chili in Singapore, which are not much hot as bird’s eye chili or another small version of green chili. However, my suggestion is that if you can’t find this long green chili, then why don’t you go with any type of green chili that you have? However, the taste of your chili pickle will vary as per the green chili type you use in the pickle.
On the other way, it is really easy to buy a bottle of pickled green chili from any Asian grocery store. But, spend a few minutes and make your homemade pickled chili. You’ll find how amazingly your homemade green chili pickle tastes.
To make this chili pickle, simply slice green chilies. Wash with hot water and mix with vinegar solution.
Store in a glass bottle till it is ready to serve. That’s it.
