Kashmiri chilis, in whole and powdered form, are a staple of Indian cuisine and a welcome addition to any dish that needs a burst of flavor and color. The fresh peppers are long, slender and brilliant red. Kashmiri chili boasts a classic balance of heat and sweetness, and this variety is hotter than others you may have tried!
The chilis are prized for their flavor and also their vibrant red color, which imparts a beautiful hue to rubs for Tandoori meats and stews like Rogan Josh. The rich color and bright, sweet flavor make this chili powder a perfect everyday alternative to cayenne, and the full, round taste is a welcome addition anywhere you might use cayenne pepper or hot paprika.
Our partner farmer Showkat grows Kashmiri chilis on farms in Kashmir's famous saffron-growing region, Pampore. While most Kashmiri-variety chili isn't actually grown in Kashmir, Showkat grows two heirloom varieties in Kashmir proper.

This spice has a nice heat and lovely color. It is quite potent so I recommend adding a bit before building up the heat.
