...Slice a chilli

Step by step

1 Cut the chilli in half lengthways through the stem. Scrape away the seeds and pale ribs with a teaspoon and discard (if extra heat is required, leave the seeds and ribs in).

2 Slice across the chilli into fine julienne strips. Be careful not to wipe your face or eyes with a hand that has touched chilli as it is a strong irritant. Wash your hands after preparing chillies.

A note on quality...

When choosing chillies and peppers, look for shiny, plump ones, with no soft spots.
