One more question please before start making a Chicken tikka masala is byadgi chilli (Not kshmeri chilli powder)http://byadgichilli.com/byadgi_chilli.php to make a chili paste
can you find byadgi chilli comenly in American grocery stores because most of the recipes use paprika but we can try withot parika but our experience byadgi chilli (home
made paste)can make better colour and flavour for sure.https://picasaweb.google.com/112094371507683018351/ByadgiChilliColour#
I found even Indian chefs in restaurants in India were misidentifying Byadgi chillies as Kashmiri ones (even a Pandit from Kashmir!!)
just use jars of chilli labeled 'Kashmiri chilies', you now know they are not, but it is probably what the originator of the recipe specified, anyway. At supermarket chain is
labeling its 'Kashmiri chillies' as really being Byadgi ones!
