    Chile Pickle (Molagai Ooruga)

  • 12 green New Mexican chiles
    [hotter, thinner, green peppers would work better and be more authentic]
  • 3 lemons, cut into halves [limes would be a good substitute]
  • 2 Tablespoons ginger, finely chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Combine all the ingredients in a clean, dry glass jar, seal tightly and store in a cool dark area for three to four days, shaking it once a day. Transfer the ingredients to the refrigerator. Take out the preserve 10 minutes before you want to use it.

    This pickle is often eaten with unleavened bread; it serves as a relish. It also makes a delightful companion to white rice mixed with a generous amount of yogurt. The yogurt, rice, and green chile pickle often make a perfect summer picnic dish. In Madras, we use long green chiles. This preserve goes well with nachos too. You can add it to any salad. Serrano chiles are good substitutes.
