Our Extra Hot Ground Red Chile Powder is a fiery hot chile powder! Comprised primarily from the Teja chile, this powder has a clean taste and a scintillating heat. The Teja chile is one of the hottest peppers India has produced, outdone only by the heavyweight Bhut Jolokia. Originating in the celebrated chile-growing Guntur District, the Teja has a thick red skin that is better suited for drying and grinding, than for chopping and eating. Teja chiles have a wide Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) range, generally registering between 75,000-110,000 SHU, though they have been known to clock in at 170,000 SHU. This powder averages around 90,000 SHU and is produced more for heat than for taste. It does not add a pronounced chile flavor.

India’s Guntur District, a region in the Andhra Pradesh state that faces the Bay of Bengal on India’s eastern coastline, has been a long-standing hub of Indian life and culture. It was already a city circa 900 BCE and in roughly 500 BCE Gautama Buddha—The Buddha—was teaching in the Guntur region, which paved the way for Guntur’s establishment as a center for learning. The area is also referred to as “The Land of the Chiles”, and is responsible for approximately 46% of India’s entire chile production.


Tips From Our Kitchen


This chile powder can be used in everything from pasta sauces to popcorn toppings, but it is very spicy and should be used sparingly! This is a very popular chile powder in Indian cuisine, so it can be used in a variety of Indian dishes, like spinachy saag paneer or natu kodi kura, a coconut chicken curry dish. It’s great for spicing up chutney, and would be wonderful on roasted vegetables. Try it on roasted eggplant! If you want to be playful this would be fun in a spicy salted caramel sauce. Remember, this powder is very hot, so eat carefully. If you do over-do it, remember that milk can help soothe the chili burn. The protein casein can break the bonds that the hot chemical compound capsaicin forms on nerve receptors. Whole milk products are more effective than fat-free ones because capsaicin is fat-soluble, so it will bond to the milkfat and wash away, and that holds true for all varieties of chiles, though depending on the heat level, it may take a while to feel the soothing calm.

Our Extra Hot Ground Red Chile Powder comes from India.

Best pet repellant Two weeks after applying these spices on my yard there has been no signs of pet droppings. The smell of the spices is fresh and strong. I should have bought these spices earlier. Thank you Spices Inc.
