- 250 g water
- 250 ml white vinegar

Wash whole chillies and make a few holes in each chilli with a pin. Heat water, vinegar, sugar, salt, coriander seeds, peppercorns and bay leaves until sugar and salt dissolve. Do not boil the it, only heat it up till it is hot.
Put the chillies in jars and pour the hot vinegar mixture over chillies. Then seal it. Check the liquid levels in the jar after a week as you may need to top up with some more vinegar mixture to ensure no air gets to the chillies. That will prevent them to oxidise and turn bad.
