(Bajji Milagai Kootu)

I never tried chilli subzi in my life till such time I enjoyed the dish at my Cousin's place at Calicut. It was a simple, easy and tasty dish. I got the chance only today to make it. In Mumbai, we get the chilli for making bhajiyas. In Kerala, she was saying, it is a kind of chilli somewhat little bit white/greenish in color only available in a particular season. In Tamilnadu banana pepper is called as bajji milagai, as it is predominantly used form making milagai bajji. Hope you will also enjoy the same.
