Rajasthani Red Paprika (Kashmiri chili), Ground

Rajasthani Red Paprika (Kashmiri chili), Ground

We found an extremely delicious Red Paprika in the colorful state of Rajasthan in India. (About the only thing more colorful than the paprika are the colors of the local saris.)

Our paprika is made from air-dried fruits of Kashmiri chili peppers. Our ground Rajasthani Red Paprika is complex, smoky (but not smoked), earthy and packs a bit of heat.

We give you access to the exact same lots of paprika that we supply to our award-winning chefs across the country.

Our paprika goes on a lot more than potato salad. Add to your favorite pasta sauce. Use it on chicken, lamb and seafood. Chili, soups and stews, too. You can even sprinkle our Red Paprika on potatoes, homemade fries and pizza. 

One other thing I want you to know. This Red Paprika and all of our spices are unbelievably fresh because we buy right from the farms in India in small batches. Nothing ever sits. It will be obvious what I'm talking about the second you open the package.

Best In The World

I’m madly in love with the Rajasthani Red Paprika (Kashmiri chili). Its intense and yet subtle flavors add the perfect touch to so many dishes. My favorite is to add it to egg salad and it just sings.

There is no reluctance here when I say.. Once you have used their spices, there is no turning back. It's a flavor bomb!

Great items and even better customer service

I appreciate the personal interactions from the owner of Reluctant Trader as much as I do the quality of the goods offered. Have purchased a lot of excellent spices and the accessories are just perfect especially the glass containers.


I will never buy grocery store spices again. This is delicious!
