Hey, hot stuff!!

Green Chillies

Green Chilli

Do you know that there is a day celebrated internationally known as ‘International hot and spicy food day’?

Every year the day is celebrated on 16th January.

You are aware that chilli peppers are one of the hottest foods on the planet.

Oh! These chillies!!

We Indians love Green Chilli.

Let me come straight to the point.

We love spicy food.

Indians are raised with chilli and are so used to this chilli fruit, that any food that lacks chilli is too bland and the joy of eating food is lost!

We love adding them to our curries and a few of us enjoy eating raw.

( Warning ⚠ eating raw chillies is not advised).

You can include it in salad or pickles and then consume it.

There is some philosophy of life too if you dare to eat raw chilli

“Embarrassment felt a lot like eating chilli peppers. It burned in the back of your throat and there was nothing you could do to make it go away. You just had to take it, suffer from it, until it eased off” Sarah Addison Allen

As an Indian, you also agree that spicy fruit is an important part of all our meals.

Do you know the benefits of green chillies my friend?
