Chilli Powder

Chili powder, chile powder or chilli powder (British English) is a piquant (“hot”) spice made entirely or mainly from powdered hot chili peppers.

The peppers may be virtually any hot pepper including cayenne, ancho, jalapeño, New Mexico, and pasilla chilis. The piquance (“heat” or “spicyness”) of the powder varies widely depending on which are used, and their proportions if several types are mixed.

In many cuisines, such as traditional Indian cuisine and in the United Kingdom, chili powder is usually simply pure powdered chili.
