The white habanero makes white fire sauce. You have to dry them out then pulverise them. then make a sauce in the same way as you make a white fish sauce.

It is beautiful.
Very well described. You really give a good idea of what to expect. Canyou explain the sauce like "white fish sauce"? I never heard of a white fish sauce. Google search tturns up mostly "whitefish" sauces, not white fish-sauce.

chocolate habanero

I got my Chocolate Habanero seeds with my chilligrowingkit.

The white sauce I refered to is the basic white sauce made with flour etc.
Except that it is choca with powdered white habanero.

If you search for chilligrowingkit you will find one.

The Chocolate Habanero is without a doubt the Queen of taste.

Yes I do see your post there, however flavor was not mentioned. For instance, habaneros are very hot, but have a very fruity flavor. I was wondering what kind of flavor the bih jolokia has.
I can't bear hot taste that is why I never tasted it, it got a strange wild flavor.

Thanks radhuni. From the sounds of it, very few would probably be able to get past the hotness to actually taste the flavor.

what does "Naga" translate to?

also for interest, in Bangladesh, they`re called what sounds like; Kasan Mo Rees.

no idea what it translates to directly though

Naga is a tribe of North Eastern India.

That is not morees but 'morich' means chili in Bengali.

Are you sure that the another word is Kasan ? I am Bengali I never heard the word kasan. May be it is a word of regional dialect.

I have a bunch of dried California chili pods and want to make a fried mushroom recipe that calls for Chipotles. How do the two compare in taste/spiciness?

That would explain what happened to my exchange student.

They wouldn't compare at all in terms of taste, as chipotles are smoked jalapenos.

California chiles (aka Anaheims) are quite mild, certainly milder than chipotles.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
