Hi Hari
Is there a big difference between Kashmiri chilli powder and normal chilli powder ? Would normal chilli powder be an ok substitute
Many thanks

Hi Kashmiri chilli powder is mild and smoky but the key thing is it's colour. It gives a vibrant red colour to dishes like tandoori chicken etc. If it's a dish where the colour doesn't matter then any chilli powder is fine. A good sub for Kashmiri chilli powder is half and half paprika and chilli powder. It's just my personal preference. Hope that helps.
