A chilli lover is forever.
Chilli, a hot spicy ingredient that is feared by some and loved by others, is a unique taste that comes in many different forms and flavours but simply can’t be imitated.
This chilli salt is a must for any chilli fan. It is simple yet delicious and before you know it you will be using it on everything (except hopefully not your cereal).
For the rest of you who are still not sure about the chilli, make this salt and delve into the dark side.
This salt is the perfect way to dabble in the beauty of chillies, as you can use as much or as little as you like on anything at all. Added sugar to chilli salt, for me is essential and is what makes this salt taste so good.
Sugar balances out the sharpness of the salt and the heat from the chillies leaving you with a spicy flavour sensation that is remarkable to say the least.
Try it on pastas, sandwiches, salads, popcorn, grilled meats and fish.
10g (22) dried chillies
2 tablespoons caster sugar
100g sea salt flakes
In a food processor, place the dried chillies and blitz for 1 minute, or until they are crumbly and flaky in texture.
Add the salt and sugar and blitz until well combined and the chillies are ground down to your desired consistency – personally I like the salt to still have chilli seeds scattered whole throughout it.
Store in an airtight container.
Makes 150g of salt.
