This miniature variety of cayenne is enjoyed by the Thai nation. Known as Priki nu, in their homeland, they are used more for their heat than their flavor. Thai chiles rate at about an 8-9 on a heat scale of 1-10. Cuisine from Thailand has a certain complexity that revolves around rice, coconut, lemon grass, galangal and cilantro, but these chiles are the accents that are essential to any true Thai dish.
In parts Southeast Asia a lotion made from chile pods is used for rheumatism relief.
Use these chiles in Thai curries or sauces. They are nice added to stir fries in crushed or whole form (if used whole, be sure to remove before serving.) These tiny red chiles are also great used as garnishing in both salads and noodle dishes.
