Mirchi Ka Halwa/ Green Chilly Halwa.


This is one of my experimental recipe, i made this recipe first time for a cooking contest held several years back in Chennai. The judges had the guts to taste this recipe and i was selected as winner.

Ingredients
Green chilly-1/2 kg( scrap and remove the seeds completly)
Sugar-300 gms
Desi Ghee-200 gms
Elaichi/ Green cardamom powder-1/4tsp
Green food color-few drops
Fried Cashewnuts-20
Fried Raisins-20
Water- required

Method
Boil the green chili in water for 10 mins( this process removes the hotness of the chili), drain the green chili and grind to smooth paste in a grinder. Heat desi ghee in a pan, when ghee starts to melt add the ground green chili and fry until the raw smell of the chili completely leaves. Next add sugar and green food color to the frying green chili paste and stir constantly until the ghee separates from the chili and gathers on the sides of pan. Finally add the elaichi powder, fried cashewnuts and raisins to the green chili halwa. Serve Mirchi Ka Halwa hot or cold.

Wish you a very happy new year Mythreyi! Very interesting recipe.
Close cousins would be the Pepper Jellies that we find here; you have not mentioned the end flavours: is it 'hot' or mild or just has the flavour of chillies without the heat?
Thanks!
