Dried Bhut Jolokia Chillies
The Bhut Jolokia (a.k.a. Naga Jolokia or Ghost) was the first chilli to be measured at over 1 million Scoville units – the first of the ‘super’ chillies. At that heat rating, they are 4 times hotter than the average Habanero or Scotch Bonnet but with the same fruity flavour.

These chillies are very, very hot. We recommend taking precautions when handling them:
Dried chillies can also be reconstituted by covering them in boiling water and leaving them to stand for 20 minutes or so. They can then be mixed into a dish as they are or blended before adding. Some have quite thick skins, so may need pushing through a sieve to remove the tough parts of the skin.
We recommend storing dried chillies whole, rather than grinding them to powder of flakes – powder can quickly lose the wonderful aromas and flavours so it is best to grind them to powder as you need it.
