1. Sowing

Red chili is the dried ripe fruit of the flowering plants, classified under the genus Capsicum. Red chilies are a subtropical plant which requires a combination of warm, humid and periodic dry weather. In India, they are sown in both the Rabi and Kharif seasons. Red chilies are ideally cultivated in black soil. The pH level of the soil should be between 6.5-7.5. Ground spices manufacturers are very particular about these requirements.

2. Harvesting

Like sowing, Red chilies are harvested during both the Rabi and Kharif seasons. Red chilies are pungent, and the degree of it often determines their taste and heat. The red chili fruit is placed inside a seed rich pod which have to carefully cut, manually in order to not damage the plant.

3. Drying

The next stage after harvesting the chilies is drying. Drying intensifies the flavor of chilies and gives them a longer shelf life as compared to fresh ones. Red chilies require low humidity in the environment for drying with ample amounts of ventilation.

4. Grinding

After the stage of drying, the next  is grinding. Chili exporters in India are relying more and more on technology for grinding, it  was historically a manual process. In this stage most of the adulteration into the spice takes place thereby reducing its quality and taste, 

5. Packaging

ADULTERATION

Following are some test to check if your Red Chilli Powder is adulterated or not.

1. The Water Test

Chilli Powder is mostly adulterated with brick powder, salt powder or talc powder. The simplest way to detect these is to add a teaspoon of Chilli Powder to a glass of plain water. If it is artificially coloured, the water will change its colour. It may turn reddish-brown, due to the presence of brick powder. Pure Red Chilli Powder does not really dissolve in water.

2. Checking for Brick Powder

The most common adulterant for Red Chilli Powder is brick powder because it has a similar texture and colour. To test for brick powder, rub some Chilli Powder at the bottom of a glass. If you feel some kind of grittiness, it could indicate the presence of brick powder or even sand.

3. To Test for Artificial Colour

Red Chilli Powder may be mixed with artificial colours to give it the bright hue. Sprinkle some Chilli Powder over a glass of water. If you notice a coloured streak; your Red Chilli Powder could be adulterated. In most cases, water soluble coal tar colour is added to red chilly powder.
