How to make your own chilli powder – proceed at your own risk
Warning: contains hot, HOT stuff
So we have spoken about doing this for some time, making our own condiments. Specifically, chilli and curry powders. Today, we actually made the chilli powder, to a recipe given to us by my Wife's Aunt.
I must say, the recipe caught me on the hop. Corriander seeds? Curry Leaves? Roasted Black Pepper? Dried Red Chilli and Sweet Cumin and Cumin and a teaspoon of Dill Seed? What was going on here? So I turned to the ol' world-wide-web and asked it the recipe of Chili Powder. Horror! Shock! Sweet Paprika? Oregano? Cayenne Peppers?
Turns out the only "correct" recipe on the 'Net was, take chilis dry them, grind them in a coffee grinder. My sainted Grand Mother just rolled in her grave!
Ready for the grinders
Once everything was roasted, it was all bagged and taken to the Grinding Mill to be ground.
