Just Curry

BRITISH INDIAN RESTAURANT FOOD (BIR)

Chilli powder

Is the dried and ground fruit of the chilli plant. Used the world over for adding heat into any dish not just Indian food. 

In the UK chilli is spelt with 2 x L but in other parts of the world including the USA its spelt with one L.  Often you will see extra hot chilli powder or mild chilli powder and also increasing common is chilli blended with other spices, however its best to use the normal heat version for most cooking as it offers great taste along with the heat.
