Home-Made Chili Flakes

You Can Make Chili Flakes In Ten Minutes

Chili flakes are one of the ingredients we use in our regular cooking. Many people buy them from the market. Home-made chili flakes have better quality and a longer shelf-life.

You can easily make chili flakes at home. To start with, clean red chilies and remove the stalk. Next, spread them under the sun, until they are crispy. Alternatively, you can make them dry by placing them in a warm oven.

Next, put them in a mixer. Pulse 2-3 times or run the mixer 2-3 times for very short time. Store these chili flakes in an air-tight container and use for months, whenever needed.

Now, let me share with you the detailed recipe.
