I've noticed that different recipes 'demand' that one uses chopped fresh chillies (seeds included or not), chilli flakes, crumbled bird's-eye chillies, chilli powder plus a few more choices too.

Is it really possible to tell which one has been used in the final epicurean delight?

I think you should do a taste test and then report back....

Always add half a big bar of dark chocolate - yummy!
Chilli and chocolate. I've seen that combination in a meal in Asda but i didn't fancy paying a fiver and finding it was horrible. It's not the sort of thing you can give to your dog if you don't like it.

just add a modest amount of cocoa powder and see if you like it. If you don't then it should still be edible.

Not tried cumin or coriander - not convinced - it's a curry .rather than a chilli then surely
