Fry it and leave it on low heat with the lid on for few minutes.If you Cant find this Pakistani Chilies I often use Jalapeno Peppers as an alternative.

You can serve hot and also refrigerate it over two weeks in a dry container with a lid on.I also make Achari Bhindi(Okra) with the same method.This is the best thing you can serve along with simple food but unbeatable for sure…try it and ENJOY!!
