    Delicious Basic Red Chilli Paste

    Red Chilli Paste or Chilli Boh like we say here in Malaysia, is used in a
    lot of recipes to give the dish a more tasty-hot flavor. It is very
    delicious to use if you make your own tandoori mixture. The Chilli paste
    is conserved in the fridge and has a much richer taste than the "just-hot_
    chilli powder.

    Basic Red Chilli Paste

    3/4 ounce (20g) dried chillies,
    4 fresh red chillies
    a pinch of salt

    Soak the dry red chillies in hot water, remove the seeds and drain the
    chillies. Cut the fresh chillies lengthwise and remove the seeds. Process
    dried chillies, red chillies and salt in an electric blender or food
    processor (you may need to add a little liquid or water). Keep the chilli
    boh in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use when needed.
