Hi. My name is Carrie Hunt and of behalf of Expert Village today I'm going to show you
how to make Palak Moong. Next we're going to be cutting our green hot chilis. I am making
this for friends so I am going to go ahead and brave three chilis today. We'll see how
it turns out. First you're going to want to cut off the top. And you're going to slice
it right down the middle. Now inside you see the seeds this is where the spice is. And
sometimes it?s a very bitter, not very good flavor so you want to just push them off into
the sink and we'll throw them away. You're going to want to do this to all three of your
peppers. Cut the tops off and the seeds out. These peppers were bought at a local farmer's
market which is where I recommend you really try to find all of your ingredients. Because
they are so much fresher than anything you find at any supermarket. And, of course, you
are supporting your local economy which is always a good idea. All right, we've got one
more to go. We're living dangerously today. Last one. And these are going to becomes minced
green peppers. So we'll take them all and I like, in my Palak Moong, I really like bigger
chunks of things so I'm not going to do these small, I like them big. So these are about
half inch sections , then I'll run my knife through them one more time just to make sure
they get down to a good size. You can really smell that spice and its already coming up
right there. All right, that looks good.
