How to grow chilies from seed

Malaysia is known as a hot and spicy country due to its dishes and of the famous "chilies" grown locally.

I love gardening and growing my own plants from the seeds and attempted to grow them from seeds here in Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia.

I planted the chili seeds in February 2015, using a makeshift pots with plastic pet bottles.

When the sprouts grow and looked stable, I transferred it into bigger pots, and in October 2015, the chilies has already matured and started to produce the first chilies.

The seeds I used for planting, are just ordinary seeds from the dry chilies I use in my dishes.

Nasi campur - Mixed Rice

After 10 years in Malaysia, I started to enjoy the Malay dishes. One of my favorite food is "Nasi campur" - mixed rice (commonly refers to a dish of a scoop of white rice accompanied by small portions of a number of other dishes such as meat, vegetables, peanuts, curries, soup, eggs) especially served during lunch time.

I also enjoy cooking my own "nasi campur" - mixed rice at home, mostly referring to recipe books or youtube videos recipes. Other than that, I love to eat in restaurants with menus which I cannot prepare easily at home.

However, when cooking at home, the downside is that you have more food wastes, budgets and so on...but if you go to a "nasi campur" restaurant there you could enjoy more types of vegetables, various types of curries/soups, meat baked/boiled/barbecue/fried and many more dishes.

Some of the famous "nasi campur" restaurants that I have visited are Top D'Gurun and Bawal Goreng Panas.
