Dried Chillies/Peppers (100g)

People tend to get chili peppers all wrong because their ultra spicy reputation precedes them. This is a misconception because all chilies are not so hot and spicy. Some are mild, sweet or own rich flavors. There is a wide variety of ways to use chilies when cooking. One such method is using dried chili peppers in numerous ways.

If you are wishing to dry your own chilies to be used as an ingredient, you could start by tying the stems to a piece of twine, placing the chilies together while making the strand as long as you see fit. You should then hang the chilies in a dry area with free air circulation for several weeks. Once this process is complete, the chilies will have changed their appearance to a glistening red, after which they will seem smooth and dry. Once this has been completed, you will have the perfect dried chili to use in a variety of culinary ways.

Once you have the dried chilies in your possession, you can ground them down with a mortar and pestle to make chili powder. You can also mix the dried chilies with garlic, salt and other ingredients to make the chili pastes that you would see on an everyday Thai market or in a supermarket.

The dried and grounded chilies used in the paste will then be used to make Thai dishes such as Pad Thai noodles, Laab Gai (Spicy Chicken Salad) and a variety of curry dishes.

When the dried chilies are used in curry powder, they can be used as ingredients for Boo Paht Pong Karee (Thai Crab Curry). Phong Karee (curry powder) is not the main ingredient used to make Thai curries, but is only occasionally used in this way. Dried chilies are versatile cooking companions that should be a main ingredient in your kitchen.
