Urfa Chilli Paste.jpg

We saw the emergence of the Urfa chilli in some cutting edge Middle Eastern restaurants in the UK, and noticed that smoky, earthy flavours were on the rise. On a trip to Istanbul, we discovered that the traditional Turkish pepper paste, Biber Salcasi, is used as the base of many Turkish dishes, so we used this to help achieve a full flavour delivery. Combining these ingredients, we have created something with a flavoursome punch that has many applications.

Once the Urfa Chilli peppers are picked, they are left in the sun to cure and develop their deep reddish-brown colour. This process lends them distinctive earthy and smoky flavours with hints of raisin and tobacco, which gives way to a strong, but not fierce, chilli heat. Use as a base for marinades, dressings and drizzles on fish, meat and vegetables or mix with yoghurt to create a dip.
