    Mini,
    I usually take out the stem out of the green chillies ( this will prevent its ripening) and keep it with the plastic bag which comes alongwith it, in the freezer.... some will keep it in the fridge.

    Yes Mini what Sriniketan is saying is right even I remove the stem and keep it in the plasitic bag and also add salt and make paste of it and store it in the fridge. Which is also handy.

    My Method : Dry the moisture of chillies by placing on window-sill in sun for few hrs. wrap in paper towel and put in plastic bag in fridge

    My Mom's Method : Grind chillies with bit of salt and lemon juice and store in fridge for upto 2 weeks.

    Hi Mini,

    I have already given this information in this same forum in 'Storing tips" If you go through that thread you will get more information.
    Here I am repeating that here.

    To keep the green chillies fresh wash them remove the head, put them in a food storeage cover or a zipper locker cover and keep them in the FREEZER.
    when ever you need take from the pack. You can store even more than 6 months.
    and one more,

    Yes you can store green chillies in India too. But the fridge must be a FROST FREE FRIDGE. Even after current cut it can with stand for 8 - 10 hours. Thank god till this date there is no such a loooooooooooong power cut.[​IMG]

    In this attached picture you are seeing Green Chillies which I kept 35 days before. I think you can see ice on it. After you remove from the fridge, immediately you cut (it will be some what hard and you can even break it with your fingers.) and use for sambar or any thing.
