  • Let’s make masala for stuffing in chillies. In a blender jar take coriander seeds, mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds.
  • Blend it into coarse powder. Do not make fine powder.
  • Take the blended powder into a dish.
  • Add turmeric powder, salt and asafoetida. Add oil and mix well.
  • Take chillies and make a slit at the centre. Make a small cut near the stalk too.
  • We have to stuff the chillies. Remove the seeds from the chillies.
  • Stuff the masala in chillies. Pack it tightly by pressing really good.
  • Dry these chillies under hot sun for 4-5 days.
  • You also can dry these in microwave if you don’t get sun’s heat enough. You can bake the chillies in oven at 100 Deg C or approximately 200 Deg F for 3-4 hours.
  • These dry up in 3-4 hours. You can reduce the temperature to 90 Deg C too.
  • On drying these chillies change their colour. They turn whitish.
  • You can use these chillies in tadka especially for dahi butti.
  • They go well as side dish when shallow or deep fried.


  • Oil is used for binding the masala. When we dry the chillies or fry it masala doesn’t spill out.
  • Do not remove the seeds if you don't want to.
