Authentic Indian Red Pepper Powder is commonly used to make masala for many Indian dishes. The heat level is borderline hot at 60,000 Scoville Heat Units and can be used in just about any recipe. It works great on the BBQ and and takes a boring steak up to the next level by adding complex smokey flavors with just the right amount of heat. You'll want to add this pepper slowly to your dishes though, as the heat slowly builds over time with a nice kick at the end. Each size comes in a professionally sealed spice jar with a sifter flip cap.
