When therez gongura pickle, believe me guys, I don't prefer any gravy with hot steamed rice. What I need is just a spoon of this pickle. Awesome meal I would say. This is one of my fav pickle, prepared by my mom when I visited my place during vocation. And the taste was just unbelievable and obviously it will be na when our mom cooks something special for us adding extra ingredients of love and care. Isn't? So here's the recipe.

3 Green Chillies.
