Dahi Wali Mirchi is a popular dish from Rajasthan wherein green chillies are simmered in yogurt and spicy. Simple, delicious and super easy to make. This is a perfect recipe for preparing as a side dish.

Rajasthani food is usually spicy, and chilies play a dominant role in cooking. There is a huge variety of chilies available in Rajasthan and many recipes like Mirchi ki Tipore and Bharwa mirchi, and Mirchi Vada are example of Rajasthani food.

Typically, if made in Rajasthan, Dahi Wali Mirchi would be prepared using super-hot thin long green chilies that are super-hot. It is typically used as an accompaniment to the main meal and eaten sparingly. But I am north Indian so always I have used mild chilies. Means, you can use any chilies you prefer or is locally available.
