A fiery-looking spice paste made with pungent ingredients like red chillies, garlic and ginger, the red paste is really not as hot as it looks because of the addition of beaten rice, which not only adds volume but also balances the strong flavours of the spices. The red paste can be used to pep up a variety of subzis, starters and even sandwiches.
