Aleppo Pul Piber by Rooted Spices

These chilli flakes are a hot ingredient, since being championed by Nigella and Ottolenghi. Pul biber is an everyday table spice in Turkey where it’s liberally sprinkled over dishes, like the Eastern equivalent of black pepper – the perfect kick for fried eggs, avocado toast, roast salmon or grilled aubergine.  

The best Aleppo pul biber is a bright orange-red colour with a sundried tomato like fruitiness. It has a moist texture, thanks to the traditional drying process which involves bagging and ‘sweating’ the chilli flakes to make sure that they retain their natural oils. The end result is a world away from paper-dry, tasteless chilli flakes.  

Instead, Aleppo pul biber is all about delivering a big finishing flavour. Throughout Turkish cafes, customers might use Aleppo pul biber to season lahmacun flatbread, kebabs and manti dumplings. There’s no need to stick to the rules though – Aleppo pul biber is a versatile spice which will enhance anything from grilled prawns to pizza.  

As its name suggests Aleppo pul biber originates in Syria, though most of the market supply currently comes from Turkey, which shares a similar climate, suited to chilli pepper cultivation.
