Sivathei Chillies
Pronounce It Button

spiciness level : 5

Pineapple ∙ Smoke ∙ Maple ∙ Guava

The 7th hottest chilli in the world, but also so much more than that! They're an absolute delight to cook with ft. fruity, fragrant notes of pineapple, maple, and guava. Please be careful when handling, just a quarter chilli is enough to add significant heat to a whole pot of dal!

“These smell insane. So smoky and warm. If you lean towards a smoky heat then there are FOR YOU.”

  • Grown by Zeinorin Angkang of Hillwild and her small collective of neighbors turned organic farmers in the hills of Ukhrul, Manipur alongside indigenous soybeans, rice and yams. These fiery chillies are smoked on bamboo mats over a wood fire to give them their intoxicating fruity, smoky fragrance. Zeinorin is a skilled farmer, business woman and a proud member of the Tangkhul tribe which is why we call these chillies by their Tangkhul name of Sivathei!
