Visit any Thai noodle shops; one of the condiments on your table is ground chili pepper. The other standard condiments are fresh chili pepper pickled in vinegar, sugar and fish sauce. Ground dried chili pepper is a very versatile part of Thai cooking and you will see it in most salad dishes, like laab.
Your homemade ground chili will have a wonderful toasted aroma that can be lost in store-bought ones.
