Ground Chilli Peppers (many varieties all of the Capsicum family), are common spice used in Indian Curries. Want to cook a Vindaloo or Madras, use a few spoons of chilli powder to strengthen to your taste level.
Produced in most tropical countries but supplies available in the UK usually come from southern India, Pakistan or China. Depending on the variety of Chilli Pepper used Chilli Powders range from the mildly hot to the downright dangerous and vary in colour from pale yellow/pink to deep red.
Avoid contact with face and eyes, use your hands after use.
