Kenwood CH180 Mini Chopper & Sainsbury’s Scotch Bonnet Chillies

What is this about?

Well, this is about a time saving mini chopper to save us time in cooking yummy curries. By helping us super speedily chop our ingredients and additionally, this post is about some nice looking chillis I saw in Sano’s.

Here is a picture of the ‘mini chopper’, and it is rather nice! indeed rather cute. Hopefully this will save us a bunch of time fine chopping our onions and chillis. Plus this should also prevent us getting the chilli on our hands and wiping it in our eyes when we chop our onions which make our eyes water. This can be especially important when dealing with very hot chilli.

Right. I suppose we had better chop up some stuff for a curry. What better than some lovely Scotch Bonnet Chilli. Lets chop two of them whole (minus stalks). We want our curry nice and hot so seeds are naturally included.

I draw your attention to the rather boastful claim that they are ‘very hot’ with a whole four chilli mark scale on the packet.

Right, lets poke this stuff into our mini chopper and see how we get on. As you can see there is plenty of room for an onion and a pair of chillis. With room to spare too.

Litterally five seconds of quick pulses on the switch, which has by the way two positions (fast and slow) we have some proper time saving chopping!.

But, the question is how does this chilli stack up to being part of a Vindaloo?

Not bad, but add a third chilli to a portion fit for four, if you are looking for a real Vindaloo experience.
