what is the difference between chilli, red pepper flakes and paprika? In a recipe there is for instance 1 tbsp chilli powder, 1 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes and 1 tbsp paprika, isnt that all the same? I take it "paprika" is sweet unlike the other two that are hot, right? But what about the difference between those two? What IS chilli powder? Is it a blend of more spices?
I am unable to google up any answers.
