Heat oil in a large frying pan, add the sliced green chillies.
Cook the green chillies till they start to blister, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

Immediately remove from heat and pour into a heat proof container.
Serve warm or at room temperature as a side for any dish you want to add a little spice to.
