Pickled Green Chilies



These chili pickles are simple to make and are often served alongside Wonton, and Cantonese fried noodles. The chili pickles have a sweet & sour taste accompanied by a bit of spiciness that complement the flavors of Malaysian and Singaporean noodle dishes very well. You can use the pickle the next day, but it's best to leave it for a couple of days before serving.





Pickled Green Chilies

Ingredients

250 grams Green Chilies, sliced
3 Bird’s Eye Chilies (optional)
1 Tbsp Sea Salt
1 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar
3 Tbsp Sugar

Method

Place chilies in a colander, and sprinkle with sea salt. Leave it for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil until the sugar has dissolved and allow the liquid to come to room temperature.

Rinse the chilies and drain well. Place the chilies in a clean jar and pour the liquid over them, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

  1. We grew Jalapeno chillis this year, some I've frozen, but I also pickled some basically as you have. They last forever in the fridge.

  2. Do you know if the purpose of the sugar is just for taste or is it to help the pickling process? Thanks!

    1. Just for the taste, you can either use less or omit it.
