Mauritian Tropical Green Chilli Paste – Piment Crazer


Having a gloomy day?

In need of something to ignite your senses and warm your heart? How about our Tropical Green Mauritian Chilli Paste? A great kick to any starter and also can be eaten along with anything really.I mean this is how we have them in Mauritius.Practically over anything and anytime of the day and also a lot.The Green chilli paste is widely consumed among our Mauritian community.In fact there is no great appetizers without these little pot of greens.Mauritian people love their chillies and spices a lot. I am sure those who have had the chance of being in Mauritius know what I am talking about. They are the most widely used condiment along with the another famous Coriander-Mint chutney(which reminds me,I need to dedicate a food post for it too).

Very easy to make and requires very few ingredients from your food pantry as well.It will leave you all happy and hot for sure.The taste of it will surely set your mouth tingling and wanting for more.This is the magic of it,you can’t have enough of it.And here you go with our Tropical Green Mauritian Chilli Paste! My mouth waters just by the look of it too because I am thinking of the endless of possibilities I can have them with.Can you believe that they go top of everything? Even on Sandwiches and also on Fried Rice and wait in Soups and with Fritters and along with a good Curry as well! Really on everything! Once you get the taste of it,you won’t accept eating anything without.Trust me.The good thing is that you can also keep in the fridge sealed for as long as you want.Mine runs out too quickly and I have to keep making them every week so much they love Green Chilli paste at mine.

Do you love Chillies? And how often do you use them in your dishes? Or what do you usually make out of yours.I think it is a great idea to use the left over chillies sometimes at home.Hopefully you will try it too sometimes. If ever you are and loving the taste of it, would gladly love to hear your comments on it.

    Babe, can I use red chilies instead?


    • Yes you can but then you will have to balance the flavours with some ginger , raisins and a little tamarind puree too. Red Chilli taste different on its own. Hugs x
