De-Stalked Green Chilies and The removed Stalks
Green chilies are integral part of Indian cooking thus a must commodity in the kitchen. Problem comes when you take them out from fridge and find that they have rotted away when you were assured of their presence in the fridge. The main reason of cilantro (Dhaniya), mint, Palak, Methi, Green chili rotting while being stored in fridge is dirt and moisture. In case of green chilies even when cleaned chilies are stored they rot soon, this is due to the stalk of green chilies.I found that when green chilies are store in proper way they last for almost 15 days in the fridge.
