Zambian Peri Peri ~ Z for Zambia

Finally we have the Zambian Piri Piri, a traditional recipe for a classic condiment made from piri piri or any hot chilies. Since I felt our local dry red chili tha we use are quite hot, I decided to just go ahead make use of it, in this must try dish from Zambia.

The recipe calls for the whole red chilies to be sauteed in oil, then mix with other ingredients. I pulsed the chilies with garlic and then cooked in oil, it was such a typical Andhra recipe to boot! Infact Amma simply loved this, said this condiment elevated the entire meal and the blandness of other dishes were taken care with this. so I suggest you make this as a combination when you attempt making it.
