Whole dried Puya / Pulla Chillies, stemless
The Puya or Pulla chili is are a heirloom variety in Mexico and a member of the species Capsicum annuum. It is similar to the Guajillo Chili, only smaller and hotter.
The elongated peppers with about 8 cm in length ripen to a deep crimson or purplish red. They have a unique fruity flavour with licorice, cherry and wild berry undertones. In Mexico they are a favorite substitute of Guajillos for sauces, salsas and mole sauces. They work particularly well with chicken or fish as well as with burritos, stews, dips, soups and chutneys - in all dishes where you need a fruity sweetness.
Rinse the dried Puya chillies first with warm water, soak in hot water for 10 min. to rehydrate or add directly to the recipe that will cook at least 10 minutes.
