Urfa / Isot Chilli Flakes
Urfa chilli flakes, or isot biber in Turkish, is a unique roasted paprika with an intense purple colour. The spice is made from paprika peppers, which are slow dried in an oven. It has a warm, rounded, smoky spice flavour, with hint of citrus. Urfa chilli flakes or isot biber is most famously used in çiğ köfte, heavily spiced patties made from raw mincemeat and bulgur wheat, and lahmacun, a baked flat bread made with meat. To use, sprinkle over salads and meat.
