  1. The most common adulterant for chilli powder is brick powder or colored talcum, salt powder. In order to detect the presence of colored substances, take a spoonful of chilli powder in a glass filled with water. The colored powder will settle down at the bottom of the glass leaving a trail of colored streaks behind. Once the content settle at the bottom, touch the contents. Do they feel grainy between your fingers? If yes, then your chilli powder is adulterated with brick powder.
