It can often be the case that the drying process increases the heat of a chilli although the biggest difference is the taste. Ideally do not substitute dried chillies for fresh when cooking. Dried chillies are used throughout the world either whole, crushed or ground (the latter can be very hot). Fresh chillies are often used after roasting as this enhances the flavour and gets rid of the skin which can be chewy. more
