chilli powder

Definition

Food

  • The name of various mixtures of dried ground chillies with other dried herbs and spices. The pure chilli powder is very hot, but milder blends contain ground, dried sweet red peppers, oregano, and garlic amongst other things. Some are quite mild but all should be tested by adding to a known quantity of the cooked food and tasting before use.
