Often we buy oregano and chili flakes from the market. Sometimes we keep the packets of oregano and chili flakes that come with pizza or burgers and later use them for other dishes. Chili flakes and oregano available in the market are stored for a long time and they are also expensive, but what if I tell you that you can make them at home without a mixer?

Actually, it is quite easy to make both these things at home, but due to lack of knowledge many times we do not understand how to do it. So let us tell you today how to make both these things easily at home.

50 grams dry red chili

To make chili flakes, all you need is 50 grams of dry red chilies. If you want to make it without mixer then its method is also very easy.

The way to do this is that you dry it in the sun for 1 hour. You need strong sunlight. That's just the secret trick that will help you make chili flakes easily at home.

1. Break the chili from the middle and separate all the seeds.

2. Now crush the peels by putting them in a polythene

3. Now mix these two together.

It is just that easy to make chili flakes at home. This is how they are made without any effort and mixer.

How to make oregano at home without mixer

There is only one ingredient you will need to make oregano at home and that is ajwain leaves. You will get these very easily in the market or you can only plant celery tree at home which is very easy to plant.


  • celery leaves
  • Now you just have to do 3 steps-
  • First of all wash and dry the celery leaves.
  • Roast it on the pan by turning it over so that it becomes dry.

Note: You can also dry them in the sun, but they will take a long time to dry and so the easiest way would be to bake them on a griddle. If you want to microwave them, you can do that too, but flip them frequently in between so that they sink well and dry on both sides.

Initially it will look green, but when you store it, it will turn brown like oregano available in the market.
