These breadsticks bite back. Gauge your tolerance for heat as you decide how much pepper to use. Inspiration here comes from two sources. In the first instance I was trying to emulate some bread that Nepalese chef Santos Shah cooked on Masterchef. My only source of inspiration and secondly I wanted to use the on trend Nepalese ingredient Timut pepper.Chef Shah called his creation jungle bread and included anchovy. He baked it on lemongrass skewers ( see above ).Having tried a version with anchovy, as much as we love them we were not convinced. Instead of baking them on skewers, camp fire bread stick style, I incorporated lemongrass powder into the ingredients along with paprika to give the bread a rounded smoky finish.
