Hi Binnur...just love your recipes. Have just come back from Turkey and loved the food.. Can you tell me what crushed red pepper is. I live in Australia so ingredients are different here. Is it just red peppercorns or is it chilli?? I Look forward to your reply. Wendy

Hi Wendy,
Crushed red pepper or red pepper flakes is a condiment consisting of dried and crushed (as opposed to ground) red chili peppers.
