How to Make Red Chilli Powder

  • For a deep colour but a not too spicy taste, choose the long, shiny, thick, dried chillies.
  • Sun them till crisp.
  • Break off stalks and discard.
  • While pounding add a tsp of oil to a kg of chillies.
  • This will act as a preservative.
  • Once powdered, pack in a ziplock or seam-seal polythene bags. Or in sterile glass jars with airtight lids.
  • Put small blocks of asafoetida or spread some salt on top of the powder to preserve from getting spoilt for a longer time.
