Using a versatile and flavourful spice like Kashmiri Chilli Powder not only simplifies the cooking process but also ensures that your meals are packed with taste.

This efficiency means you can spend more time enjoying your meal and less time in the kitchen.

Creating simple recipes that highlight the vibrant colour and mild heat of Kashmiri Chilli Powder can be a great way to show its versatility and appeal. By focusing on just three main ingredients, you can craft dishes that are not only quick and easy to prepare but also rich in flavour and visually stunning. This approach allows the unique qualities of Kashmiri Chilli Powder to shine, enhancing each dish with its brilliant hue and subtle spice

Here are three delicious and easy-to-make recipes using just three ingredients each, excluding basic staples like salt and oil.

1. Kashmiri Chilli Roasted Potatoes


  • Potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder


  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures that your oven is hot enough to roast the potatoes to perfection.
  2. Prepare Potatoes: Wash and cut the potatoes into bite-sized cubes. Uniform sizes ensure even cooking.
  3. Season: In a large bowl, toss the potato cubes with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a tablespoon (or to taste) of Kashmiri Chilli Powder until evenly coated.
  4. Roast: Spread the seasoned potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, turning once halfway through.
  5. Serve: Remove from the oven, sprinkle with salt to taste, and serve hot. These roasted potatoes are a perfect side dish for any meal! Feel free to add any herbs you have on hand.

Why You'll Love It: The olive oil helps the potatoes crisp up beautifully, while the Kashmiri Chilli Powder adds a subtle heat and a pop of colour. It’s a simple yet elegant side dish that pairs well with almost anything.

2. Kashmiri Chilli Grilled Chicken


  • Chicken breasts (or thighs)
  • Yogurt
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder


  1. Marinate Chicken: In a bowl, mix 1 cup of yogurt with 2 tablespoons of Kashmiri Chilli Powder. Add salt to taste. Coat the chicken pieces with this mixture and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes (preferably longer for deeper flavour).
  2. Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the marinated chicken for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked and charred on the edges.
  3. Serve: Let the grilled chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. This resting time allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, making it more tender and flavourful. Enjoy it with a side of fresh salad or rice.

Why You'll Love It: This recipe is perfect for summer barbecues or a quick weeknight dinner. The yogurt not only tenderizes the chicken but also helps the Kashmiri Chilli Powder to adhere, ensuring every bite is flavourful.

3. Kashmiri Chilli Paneer Skewers


  • Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese)
  • Lemon juice
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder


  1. Prepare Paneer: Cut paneer into cubes. If using store-bought paneer, you might want to soak it in warm water for 10 minutes to soften it up.
  2. Marinate: In a bowl, mix the paneer cubes with the juice of one lemon and 1-2 tablespoons of Kashmiri Chilli Powder. Add salt to taste and let it sit for at least 15-20 minutes.
  3. Skewer and Cook: Thread the marinated paneer onto skewers. Cook on a hot grill or in a hot skillet until the paneer is golden brown on all sides, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve: Serve the paneer skewers hot, garnished with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Why You'll Love It: These paneer skewers are quick to prepare and packed with flavour. They make an excellent appetiser or main course when paired with naan or a salad.

Kashmiri Chilli Powder is a fantastic ingredient to have in your kitchen. Its vibrant colour and mild heat can transform simple dishes into something special. These three-ingredient recipes are just a starting point; feel free to get creative and add your own twists. Happy cooking!
