If You Can’t Stand The Heat….

Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?

Let me tell you something right away sparky! I’m Indian. More importantly I’m from South India, Kerala to be exact. Indians can, for the most part, handle the heat and the spice. South Indians more so because we had a shit ton of masala and spices to some fish & meat curries and a bunch of chillies too. There’s chillies in my curries with my chicken, beef, mutton or fish. Even with the pure veggies. There’s chillies in my morning chutneys that I eat with my dosas for breakfast. Not too much in the morning but enough. We also tend to add green chillies to omlets.

So I can handle the spice and heat. I’m not some of you feeble bellied, fragile digestive system wimps can handle them though. But I will admit it that I do not like to have spicy food all the time though. There is a time and a place for it and too much of it can cause you problems. But yeah sometimes spicy is good and you get the cravings for it. A nice thick spicy chicken/beef/lamb masala with chillies and that clears your sinuses as soon as you eat some of it. Ah, and some cold drink with ice on the side. Yum!
