 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
                         a small piece of trassi
    4                    fresh red chilies -- (4 to 5)
    1                    green chili
    1      tsp           salt
    1      tsp           soft brown sugar
   15      ml            (1 tbsp) lemon or lime juice
 
 Wrap the trassi in foil and grill until it darkens, or bake in a  preheated 
 oven at 350 degrees for a few minutes. Remove the seeds  from the chilies and 
 chop finely. Pound or process the trassi and  chilies with the other 
 ingredients until you have a smooth paste.  Store in a jar in the refrigerator 
 for a few days.
