Dried Whole Chilli Peppers (prik haeng in Thai) are integral to Thai cooking.
Pound in a mortar and pestle to make homemade curry paste. Dry roast whole chilies and add to rice dishes and Khanom Jiin (Thai Spaghetti). Roast over low heat in a heavy pan, stirring frequently to lightly char until the chilies turn a dark red. You may grind to add to salads, soups, sauces and curry pastes.
