Kashmiri Chilli

Understanding Spices

After being unavailable from Seasoned Pioneers for a number of years, Kashmiri chillies are once again available to buy online.

Originating from South India, the chilli has a sweet flavour which overlays a fierce heat but is also famed for its long, deep red pod which adds great colour to a range of dishes, dressings, marinades and salsas.

Matt from Seasoned Pioneers: “We’re delighted to have secured ongoing stock of Kashmiri Chillies. It was a hard decision to stop offering this popular chilli, but over the last few years we’ve struggled to source a good quality and reliable supply and the authenticity and integrity of all our seasonings is of utmost importance to us so we knew that the best thing would be to wait until we felt confident in a new supply.

“As seasonings can often be the most important ingredients thanks to their essential zesty flavours that create the depth of taste that adds so much to the final dish, it is vital to ensure that the very finest seasonings are used in order to achieve the most flavoursome, authentic results. We pride ourselves on offering this to our customers and didn’t want to let them down.”

Other fans of the deep red chillies include Rick Stein and Madhur Jaffrey who use them in a number of their recipes. Click on the link below for a great recipe which could come in handy for any Christmas dinner leftovers!
