one if the things @Hari Ghotra emphasises is the importance of the ref of kashmiri chilli in recipes to provide a vibrant colour to dishes.

I have been using Kashmiri Chilli (KC) purchased from Hari's website. As I am near to running out I bought a packet of fudco KC from Sainsburys with my weekly online shop. this turned out to be a lot darker than the KC from Hari's shop.

I next turned to Amazon who sell TRS KC. This is a more similar colour to Hari's, if a little more muted.

The photo shows all 3 together, with Hari's in the centre.

So, @Hari Ghotra what's your view, and which brand do you generally use?

I have started buying them whole and then grinding- seems to give a good red colour

I really like the Fudco one. It looks dark but that maybe due to it being so compact in the pack maybe.
