Hmmmm.... eating a whole chilli straight out the packet, not a good idea... :-) amazing heat though, looking forward to cooking with them. ..

impressive! very tasty and fruity and if used properly the 'dryness' taste vanishes, i have found the best way to utilise these bad boys is to grate over a pan of whatever your cooking up, then stir in as opposed to rehydrating or chopping. Just one of these is enough to adequatly spice up a pan of chili con carne brilliantly. Another great purchase from the Pleasure & Pain range and combine with the pure pain naga paste, two of the finest products i have purchased from Scorchio...

I am actually a bit disappointed with mine. I can handle my chilli, but not to any extreme extent. Just to see what they were made of I soaked one until soft and ate the whole thing. Sure it was hot but absolutely not mental hot in any way. I get the same reaction from the Thai chillies I buy from my nearest grocery store. One Naga per person in a curry makes my nose run a little, but nothing more. Nice flavor but not the intense heat I had expected. The Naga paste however is something else. That one truly lives up to the hype...

I bought these to put in some apple chutney to spice it up. I have not been disappointed! I used 16oz of "very hot" (some scotch bonnets) supermarket chillies in my last batch, but my 6 year old daughter still found it palatable. I put the whole pack of dried Naga Jolokia Chillies into my batch at the weekend, despite chastisement from my wife. I soaked them in warm water before roughly chopping them up, and dropping them in (I also added the soaking water). I tried a small bit on a teaspoon and I have finally got the effect I desired! Beautifully hot and tasty! My daughters wanted to try some so I let them (a teeny small dip of the finger). They went red in the face and demanded water! Note, there were no unpleasant chilli fumes while cooking...

This s**t is powerful. Not in a nice way though, cooking with dried chillies is madness. Its a horrible sensation that lasts 24 hours - I was farting all day after eating a curry with this stuff in it, and had heartburn too - its a different burn to fresh chilli and not recommended. Im Indian and when I told my mum to chuck a couple of these bad boys in the curry she was not happy - dried chillies are not good for you and give you a dry burn that doesnt even taste nice when eating it, but gives you a horrid burning sensation in the pit of your stomach for 24hrs after ingesting. THIS IS NOT A SLIGHT ON THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT - rather a warning to not cook with dried chillies of any kind - its not a good look. I will be using the rest of these c*nts for chilli sauce, and using the NAGA paste for cooking - which might I add is amazing...

These lovely little beggars are perfect for grinding to make the best chilli powder you will ever have. Do them in a spice mill or even better your Mother-in-law's coffee bean grinder. Add doses using the small end of s teaspoon as it's potent, about a little fingernail's worth is good for turning a plain curry into a madras. Leave the seeds in or out - if you can separate the seeds, they are easy to grow next wear for your own everlasting supply of bum-warming loveliness..
