VERY HOT dried Naga chillies, a.k.a Bhut Jolokia or Ghost chillies.
The Naga chilli is know for its extreme heat, and rightly so, as it measures over 1 million units on the Scoville heat scale! It has a unique flavour though, which is definitely worth a try if you can stand its explosive spiciness. Naga chillies can be dropped whole into a dish or, for a more even heat distribution, re-hydrate one by soaking it in water and pureeing it before adding to your meal. They can also be made into a fiery pickle; in fact, they feature in one of our most popular hot condiments: Mr Vikki’s King Naga.
Naga chillies can be ground, but we would recommend avoiding this process, as dust from the chillies can be breathed in/get in the eyes. If you would like the ground chilli, please consider buying Mr Vikki’s Bhut Jolokia Powder instead.
*WARNING: the Naga is VERY HOT! Use caution when handling and wear gloves, a mask and goggles if grinding. And please keep some yoghurt or milk on hand when eating food containing Nagas to sooth your burning mouth! *
