Nothing beats fresh, bright colored home made spices. Especially when it takes so little effort.. Imagine making chilli flakes from the many varieties of chillies available from your own backyard..from Jalapeno to Spider chilli, to Hot Habanero..
Fresh red chillies 1 Kg
- Julienne / slice the chillies into skinny strips (wear disposable gloves)
- Spread them across 4 trays and dehydrate on Hot Air 50c* for 4 hours (ready when they feel crispy / crunchy)
- Crush them in the blender until you get the texture you want (no more than 1 minute! Or else you get chilli powder..)
*no higher so you retain the bright, pretty color..
