Red Chili Powder and Flakes – the Difference?
In many countries, but this may not be the case in Pakistan, the red chili powder is somewhat milder on the Scoville scale. This is because it consists of not just powdered red chili but also the powdered cumin, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. But the flakes, on the other hand, are just crushed dried red chilies with nothing else mixed. Hence the heat of flakes is more than the powders used in many western countries.
