Rajasthani Red Paprika (Kashmiri chili), Ground

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Online Specialty Food Store"

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.

Rave reviews from me and two other couples

I purchased two containers of Red Paprika, one for us and one to share with two other foodies, one couple has lived most of their lives in India and is familiar with Indian spices. All six of us (three couples) consider your red paprika to be the best we have ever tried. At a recent dinner, the restaurant manager commented that she doesn't often see one of their tables displaying a pepper mill (RT peppercorns), a shaker (RT red paprika), and a salt shaker (Alaea salt). I asked for her hand and sprinkled in a bit of the red paprika. She exclaimed, "Wow, that is really good!"
She returned with a container for more paprika.

smoky earthy flavor with a little bite

We really enjoyed the paprika you sent. We first used it on our homemade chicken salad and it came to life with a smoky earthy flavor and a little bite. We used it next on a small piece of pork loin, which would ordinarily would be a bland dish. The ground chilies really woke it up and it turned out to be a very good meal. Another aspect that I love about this spice is that it can be used to spice individual portions. My wife doesn't like things as spicy as I do so we can each satisfy our individual tastes.

Really wonderful

This paprika is amazing!! I made a red lentil soup and used this paprika instead of the sweet paprika the recipe called for and it added so much character and depth, not to mention a little heat. Took this recipe from good to great.


Please get more of this! I recently used it to make a sweet potato chili and the flavor is out of this world. Because of this, paprika is now one of my favorite spices. I don't want to run out!


Couldn't ask for a better product excellent ,excellent, excellent.
