Chilli Pasilla Negro Whole
Pasilla Chilli is the dried version of the Chilaca Chile. Its name is derived from the word “Pasa” in Spanish, and means “little black raisin”. It is one of the most popular Mexican chillies. It has a wrinkly, long, purple pod, with reddish overtones similar to ancho chilli peppers. It has a herb-like aroma and liquorice notes and is considered a chilli with mild heat. It is not only a key ingredient in the Mexican cuisine for making the “mole” sauce along with the Ancho and Mulato chillies but also is great for making any kind of sauce.$4.99
Chilli Birds Eye Whole
The bird’s eye chilli is one of Thailand’s hottest varieties of chillies. They are picked at peak maturity then dried in their whole form to lock in full flavour and heat. Characteristic of the Thai sense of humour, the hottest of these chillies is called park kid noon, which literally means “mouse droppings.” This particular variety is known as Bird’s Eye chillies, or Bird peppers, simply because looking at one from the stem-end can appear like the eye of a bird. When they are fully mature, they turn red. They are a variety of Capsicum frutescens and were originally the chilli used in Sriracha sauce.
