  • Chop chillies and directly add into the jar. I chopped using a pair of sizzors.
  • Add garlic, coconut and oil into the mixer with chillies
  • Grind into coarse paste, pulsing the mixer till it looks even and no big pieces of chillies or garlic can be seen.
  • Add this paste to a pan, heat till starts to bubble from sides. Add salt, cumin powder, red chilli powder and turmeric powder.
  • Lower the flame to medium and add vinegar, cook the mixture.
  • Mixture after 25 minutes of cooking
  • After 35 minutes
  • Final texture that I preferred and when I thought the chillies have softened properly.
