Usually green chillies are finely chopped and added but my kids do not prefer biting into green chillies, hence I have slit it into two and them and before serving, I removed them too.
You can also add a generous pinch of black pepper powder before serving. If adding pepper powder, then adjust green chillies as per your heat tolerance level.
