Storing Green chillies

In India everyday mom buys her fresh green leafy vegetables from the vegetable walla, he always gives her some extra green chillies or karivepaku(curry leaves) or kothmir (cilantro) . No such luck here in these chain grocery stores here, except in our local farmers market where they throw in some chillies or couple of fruits just like in India. But I  go there only in summer. I do go to a mexican store everyother weekend to buy vegetables and stuff and some times there's a sale on green chillies and once in awhile I buy more chillies than needed.
After heading home,
  1. I snap off and discard the stems,
  2. wash the chillies, 
  3. pat them dry(make sure they are completely dry), 
  4. put them in a ziplock and store in the freezer.This keeps for about 3-4 months.

Another thing I do immediately after getting home(when the quantity is less is)
Follow Steps 1 through 4 and put the chillies in an airtight container lined with tissue and keep in the refrigerator. This keeps for about 3 -4 weeks.
