Urfa Chilli Flakes
Small dark flakes of the famous Urfa or Iost chilli pepper from Turkey have a fantastic sweet, slightly smoky flavour with elements of dried fruit and even tobacco. Urfa flakes are made by salting and drying the chillies in the sun then wrapping them up at night so they sweat. The chillies are then crushed and rubbed with a little bit of oil to give a wonderful deep colour and delicious flavour.
