    • ¼ cup water

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Wash and dry the chilies. If we prefer a milder sauce, we can remove the seeds and veins from the chilies. However, for a spicier sauce, leave them in.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and cook until they start to pop, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for an additional minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add the green chilies and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until softened. Be careful not to burn the chilies, as this can make the sauce bitter.

Tips for You

    • We can always experiment with different types of chilies to create our own unique flavor profile.
