Instructions
  1. Soak the deseeded chillies for 2 hours.
  2. Boil the soaked chillies in the same water. It should slip through your fingers. The texture should become slippery and slimy. Drain and cool for 30 minutes. Set aside the water.
  3. Blend together – the chillies, celery stem, celery leaves, garlic pods, green caspsicum, spring onions, ginger. I blend it, till its just a step away from a very smooth paste. Use the drained water, to help in the blending. Dont use too much. The mixture should not become runny.
To cook
  1. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Dont let it smoke.
  2. Add the green chillies and garlic and cook till soft. Garlic should not change colour.
  3. Add the blended mixture and mix well with the oil.
While cooking.
  1. Add the ketchup, malted vinegar, pepper powder and salt.
  2. Let it cook till big bubbles erupt.
  3. Cool and store in jars. This recipe makes – 9 jars of 200 gms each.
  4. When stored, a little oil will rise up. It’s necessary to keep the sauce from spoiling.
