How many teaspoons of dried chili flakes = 1 whole chili?

I can't seem to find the answer on the net.

Oh gawd... No idea....um...I normally use half a teaspoon, dried chilly flakes in spag-bowl, as a substitute for say a whole red chilly, but go easy, cos it really depends on what you call hot.

It's a trial and error thing really. I use dried whole chillies, of which I soak in warm water before using them, but they are different to your normal dried chillies ie Masterfoods sprinkling flakes in the jar...so...

I'd start with 1/4 teaspoon and taste it....add more as you go.


Sorry I took so long getting back to you...this topic must have been bumped down.

Thanks for that but you wont believe what I did..

I left the curry to simmer as you do and I kinda, sorta, FELL ASLEEP!! Mad

I was lucky the burning smell woke me up..

I think your measurement is correct too, I tasted what was left and it was not hot enough, I used 3 teaspoons of dried chili flakes so I'd say one tsp = 1 whole chili.
