Green Chili Stew | Green Chile Recipe | Hatch green chile recipes | Easy Green Chili recipe

Green Chile Stew Recipe is the one which I had recently tried and I was completely doubtful whether this easy green chile recipe would come out tasty before preparing. My hubby does not like very hot dishes even the ones which have capsicum. So, I was quite doubtful while cooking too. But I wanted to utilize the Hatch Green Chiles(Bajji Milagai - in Tamil or and Bhavnagiri Green Chillies) which were sitting inside refrigerator for more than 5 days. I bought it for making Mirchi Bajji(Milagai Bajji). But I was unable to do it. I went through several recipes with Green chili but I was not satisfied with the results. I want an easy green chile gravy kind of thing for mooli paratha and sweet corn pulao. So, I stopped searching and started with my own recipe:)

I had this green chili stew with sweet corn pulao and mooli paratha(recipe will come soon). It was so yummy seriously. My hubby gave a 5-star rating which was unbelievable for me.

Green Chile Recipes 

Green Chili Stew | Green Chile Recipe | Hatch green chile recipes | Easy Green Chili recipe - Instructions:

Cut the hatch green chile horizontally into two and then vertically which yields 4 slices from each green chili. Remove seeds from all green chiles except one. It is you who has to decide how many green chiles you want to keep with seeds. This is purely based on your preference and how hot you want the dish to be.


Add 2 tbsp of oil to tamarind and soak it for sometime and extract the juice from it.


Heat a tsp of oil, add cumin seeds. Let them crackle. Add roughly chopped onion slices and saute till they turn transparent.


Add tomato slices and saute till they turn mushy.


Cool down this mixture and grind it in a mixer to a paste. Add little water if required.


Heat another tsp of oil in the same pan. Add the cumin seeds and curry leaves.


Add the ground onion and tomato paste. Add tamarind extract, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, jaggery powder and mix well. Add little water if required. Allow it to boil for 2 minutes in medium flame.


Add the hatch green chili slices now and boil it for at least 5 minutes in low flame or till it reaches the gravy consistency. Check for salt and adjust if required. Switch off the stove. The taste of the green chillies should be completely absorbed by the gravy. Transfer into serving bowl and garnish with coriander leaves.


Serve hot with roti, pulao, fried rice or parathas.

White Sauce for Pasta Recipe - How to make White Sauce for Pasta

White Sauce for pasta Recipe is quite easy. Once the white sauce is ready, all you need to do is just adding cooked pasta in the white sauce and cook for some more time. My hubby does not love to have Pasta as main course. My kid eats a little but not much. It is only me who likes Pasta at home. So, making pasta is very rare at my home.

Easy White Sauce for Pasta

After a lot of research about making white sauce for pasta, I understood that butter, milk, flour and cheese along with some herbs make a tasty white sauce. The white sauce for pasta recipe which I have given here is very simple and I did not add any vegetables except onion. I made it on a lazy Sunday morning. But I will make this homemade white pasta sauce again and cook pasta along with few vegetables. Hope that will be more tasty than the plain pasta cooked in white sauce.

White Sauce for pasta 

Dried basil and Oregano are the best herbs to get a flavorful white sauce pasta. You can just add the herbs mix which you get from Pizza shops. Carrot, capsicum, sweet corn are the best vegetables to add. You can add garlic paste too if you like garlic flavor.

Methi Ka Paratha Recipe | Methi Roti | Methi Chapathi | How to make Methi Paratha

Methi Ka Paratha is the first thing which comes in my mind when I see a bunch of fresh methi leaves. It is not required to do anything extraordinary to prepare tasty and healthy methi parathas. Adding few ingredients along with methi leaves to our normal wheat flour turn normal chapathi into a tasty and more healthy one. Every one will agree methi paratha has its own unique flavor. All credit goes to Methi leaves(fenugreek leaves). We call it as Venthaya Keerai in Tamil. If you want a paratha in different flavor but with not more effort, Methi Ka Paratha should be your choice.

Methi Roti

Methi Ka Paratha Recipe was introduced to me by my friend Amrutha. She offered few parathas to my kid when she prepared once. My son ate it without any complaints and he liked it. I asked her the recipe. But she used to add few more ingredients like besan flour. I forget it actually and followed my own way. But if she could not have offered methi rotis on that day, I could not have made it in my kitchen :) Here I have given simple and basic version of Methi paratha.
