Chinese Green Chili Pickle Recipe

Updated on March 25, 2013

Green chili pickle is a popular condiment in Singapore and Malaysia. It is usually eaten with noodles. I love to mix it with little bit soy sauce. Although this Chinese style of chili pickle is not common in mainland China but it's favorite among Chinese peranakan (straits Chinese) in Southeast Asia.

This chili pickle is ridiculously easy to make. It also will keep fresh in the fridge for about two weeks. I love to enjoy it with some my favorite dishes such as:

      Great. I always thought that I should boil the water, vinger and sugar first and then when cooled, add to chilies. Love pickled chilies, will try your method.
