You can but the flavor is going to be different from the green chili used in Indian dishes because serranos come from Mexico and are used in Mexican cooking.  But most people just taste the heat so they won’t notice.

I use serrano in my chili.  I like it because it has a neat “bite” to it, but I do remove a lot of the white part and seeds to tone down the heat.

The flavor might not be exactly the same but I would use it as a substitution because it should be close enough.  I’m not sure which one is hotter, but I would just subsitute it out at the same amount.  I love spicy food though so I don’t think I’d mind if it happened to be hotter.
