Chilli garlic paste is a commonly used ingredient in spice-packed dishes like pav bhaji as well as many flavourful subzis and rice preparations. This pungent Red Chilli Paste is a tasty alternative to the chilli garlic paste, apt for Jains as well as those who are not fond of garlic. Bottle gourd and capsicum form the body of this paste, while red chilli gives its dominant flavour. You can prepare a batch of this paste and store it in the refrigerator for over a week.

Red Chilli Sauce ( Jain Recipe)

This recipe is a great replacement for the regular chilli garlic paste. The bottle gourd is large in quantity but it does have that very specific taste. If you think that bottle gourd will not give a good taste, then you are wrong. The paste is just perfect to add to the anything where you want a nice red colour and a little spicy taste. But yaa its too spicy as well. Must try this recipe use in variety of recipes like rice, pav bhaji and more..
