What are Kashmiri red chillies that make Shatta

    What are Kashmiri red chillies that make Shatta
  1. This is what Kashmiri red chillies look like. Most Indian savoury dishes are incomplete without a dash of chilli powder. However, when you want that mild zing and enticing red colour but also moderate spiciness, then Kashmiri chilli is the option. These chillies are rounder and less pungent but give a very vibrant red colour to a dish. In fact, they are specially bred for their vibrant red and moderate spiciness. 
  2. Break the Kashmiri red chillies into pieces with your hand.

Thanks for this yummy Shatta recipe. I love having it with any wrap recipe. Paneer wrap or a spinach wrap and even better with tikkis. Easy to prepare and slightly different from the garlic chutney we make.
