Green Chilli Gravy/ Pachai Milagai Kuzhambu

This green chilli gravy is a simple version of hyderabadi mirch ka can use bajji milagai /mirch instead of green chilli as in mirch ka salan...You can do the same with green capsicum too...At that time add a little bit more chilli powder if you want...No onion or tomato cutting required for this gravy...This goes well with rice,chapathis,mild pulavs and rotis....we had it once with idiyappam too...Try it and enjoy..
