Spicy Food Recipes

In ancient times, spice was used as a food preservative and to make it more palatable. It also warms the body. Therefore spices were important in trading as there was high demand for them. Till today spices still play important roles in our lives and widely used in Asian dishes.

 

In Asian culinary culture, many different kinds of spices are used in Asian cooking because they add flavor to the dishes to excite the taste buds and stimulate the appetite to make eating a pleasurable experience.

 

Among the many different types of spices in use are chilies, cinnamon, pepper, star anise, fennel, coriander, cloves and turmeric. For convenience, many of these spices are ground and blended into a curry powder mix. To counter the burning sensation in your mouth after consuming a hot and spicy Asian dish, be prepared with starch like rice as it helps to absorb capsaicin, the pungency in chilies and pepper. Another point to note is that we should not guzzle down ice cold drinks immediately after a spicy dish. It is better to go with hot drinks. This combination will improve our body metabolism.
