Chillies (Mirch/mirchi) are now standard in Indian food. The most common is the birds eye chilli in red and green varieties. Green chillies can be used whole, chopped or sliced. Red chillies are mostly dried and ground, but can also come whole or crushed. The Birds Eye variety tend to be small and quite hot. The flavour in these chillies can change depending on how they are cooked.
