Needing hot curries this colder time of year? Indeed, that may come at a dearer cost. With not so much collect but rather more interest, the cost of red chillies have soar by in any event 30% in Ahmedabad. Gauges by Shree Amdavad Madhupura Mahajan (SAMM) recommend that discount cost of red cold has expanded from Rs 120 for each kg a year ago to Rs 170 for every kg this year.
Explaining the trend, Dinesh Patel, president, SAMM, said, “This time around the supply is less because of lesser harvest of chillies, not just in Gujarat but also from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh too. At the same time, the demand in the export market has gone up significantly, especially in Bangladesh. With more demand and limited crop, the wholesale price of red chillies has gone up.”
Madhupura market, which is known to be probably the most seasoned flavor market of the city, right now observes at any rate 8-10 tons of stew gracefully consistently. The season for exchanging chillies has now started and is required to last throughout the following six to seven months till May.
Chillies that are utilized in stew powder are developed in northern piece of Gujarat, chiefly in Patan and Deesa. Refering to purposes for the helpless gather, Sagar Rabari, president, Khedut Ekta Manch, stated, “The extended monsoon has caused a lot of crop damage for various vegetable crops including green chillies. Due to this, the harvest reduced drastically and the sowing for the current season has also been delayed.”

Sources said that in the midst of short flexibly and popularity, the red assortments of chillies are getting acceptable costs for the ranchers. The bean stew crop – which is a favored money crop – has been unfavorably hit because of delayed relentless precipitation in Maharashtra just as Madhya Pradesh.
