Description

Organic Chilli Flakes are a great addition to curry.

Organic Chilli Flakes can be sprinkled over any meal.  The crushing process means the seeds and flesh are still visible which adds colour and texture to curries and chilli.  Chilli has a really impressive nutrition content, so if you like it hot you have a great excuse to add more.  Organic chilli flakes are high in  a large range of nutrients including Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Iron and Magnesium.

Chilli flakes added at the end of a meal allow you to choose how much spice you want in your curry rather than adding powder at the beginning of cooking – perfect if your family have different chilli requirements.

This is definitely one of our favourite products and can easily become addictive for anyone who likes a bit of spice.  Try it sprinkled over avocado on toast and you won’t look back.  If you are not an avocado fan then try it sprinkled over this homemade hummus recipe!

If you want to try something a bit different and like chocolate (who doesn’t?) then try this Raw Cacao Cups Recipe which is topped with chilli flakes.

Storage

For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight.  Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.

Family Tip:

  1. Do you live in a household where you all like the same amount of chilli? We don’t! Having chilli flakes on hand is great for those who like an extra sprinkle.
  2. Chilli flakes go really well in homemade guacamole.
