The basic recipe of Pili Pili ( also known as piri piri, pily pily, etc. ) is:
- (olive) oil
- chili peppers
Traditionally the Capsicum frutescens 'African Devil' is used, but any spicy pepper will do.
- herbs and spices
Step 1: What does it do?
In France I've seen it being used as an accompaniment to bread, this makes a simple but delicious appetizer. It's also a great way to spice up a pizza, I really prefer this to Tobasco or any other ready-made product.
Whether the Pili Pili is just spicy or more flavoursome, it can of course be used as an ingredient during cooking as well.
