A fine-ground chilli powder that is a perfect blend of colour and pungency.
Chilli is a heating spice and comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colours, and degrees of pungency. Chilli is America´s most important contribution to the world of spices, though today it is one of India´s major export attractions.
Indian chilli is grown in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and a number of other States. The highly pungent ´Guntur´ and the mildly pungent ´Byadgi´ chillies are internationally recognised as the finest in quality.
Chillies are used in Indian dishes for their hot taste and reddish colour. Red chilli ground together with coconut gives curry a firm texture. Chillies are a great source of vitamin C and good for digestion.
