  • Keep it under the sun for 6-7 days or 8-10 days at room temperature. It is good to serve now.. You can keep it till 3 months outside refrigerator.

Notes

  • If u want it little more hot you can add seeds to the filling & fill it back to chili. We are removing it to make enough space for filling.
  • You can wear surgical gloves to avoid your hands burning if you are allergic to chili touch
  • Rub some oil in your hands & then stuff it . This also prevents burning.
