       Title: Sri Lanka Fried Chiles
  Categories: Sri lanka, Chiles, Appetizers
       Yield: 24 servings
      24    Dried cayenne
            Or japone chiles
       4 tb Salt
       1 qt Water
   Make a brine from the salt and water. Soak the chiles for an hour in
   the brine. Heat a good quantity of oil. When it’s very hot, deep fry
   the chiles until they are crisp. Drain, salt and serve.
   This is the simplest way to fix dried chiles. I am told it is eaten
   as a snack at movie theaters in Sri Lanka. Since I've never been
   there, I don't know if it’s true. -- David Cook WALT
