Whole Red Chilli is a spicy, dried fruit of the Capsicum annuum plant, commonly used as a flavouring ingredient in various cuisines around the world. These chillies are harvested when fully ripe and then sun-dried to preserve their colour and heat. Whole Red Chilli vary from bright red to deep crimson, depending on the variety of the pepper and the level of ripeness at the time of harvest. These are versatile ingredients used in a wide range of dishes, including soups, stews, curries, marinades, and sauces. These can also be used to make chilli powder or flakes.
