Boriya Chilies

Boriya Chillies - They got their name "Boriya" because they resemble Indian Jujube berries known as bor (or ber in Hindi). They are used in Gujarati cooking for tempering the kadhis and daals. They are supposed to be very pungent - that's what I have been told. So I have never taken a bite, as sometimes, I do listen to my elders!! :-)
