Is that a THING after your gall bladder is removed?
It may explain A LOT
It is for me at least. Garlic and onions or anything onion-adjacent (like leeks)
Can't wait til I can get back to the Indian for a full on VINDI one day!
(Aware that technically I can already, but live with my parents who are vulnerable and aren't comfortable with me sitting in a not very well ventilated restaurant with a couple of friends who are known to be very corona-sceptical, just yet. They wouldn't stop me as I'm a grown adult, but as a grown adult I'm not going to put them through the anxiety either or go behind their backs)
Depends on the mood with the spiciness. I do often like "a kick but still being able to actually taste something". Other days I fancy a full blow your head off job.
also: grapefruit rules. i'm having one right now. so good.
I made a chilli for the first time this evening. It was fucking amazing.
Ooh, I love spicy food. Heaven for me is going out to an Indian restaurant for multiple dishes of varying spiciness!
I'm so getting a takeaway tonight now.
In terms of spicy hot I like it a lot less now then I did years ago. I do still like a lot of Indian dishes.
I adore spicy food and with the right dishes and combination of ingredients spice adds a flavour all of its own or rather, compliments the other flavours. There's no way it's JUST "all heat" and burns everything else away, although I can see why some might see it that way if their tolerance is low. And if you've no idea what you're doing (which generally I don't) it's all too easy to just bung too much chili in and fuck it all up. I'm quite lucky though, I rarely get ring sting - instead I usually FLARE UP in the face, which I think is worse.
Scotch Bonnets are like volcanoes but they have such a GORGEOUS fruity flavour to them that most chilis don't have.
Different chillis really do have different flavour profiles
I mean you could definitely argue something like a Phaal bulldozes over everything else it might have been cooked with, but fuck me if it doesn't have me SCREAMING and STEAMING in pleasure once in a while
Oh god I want a curry so bad now
Depends on if the food SHOULD BE SPICY.
Some people make everything hot and it's not becoming.
Grapefruit is fine but fucking hell what a nuisance to actually prepare - who's got the time or patience for that!
My first chilli was mild but so good. I made it to go on jackets so was lovely and thick.
Even the word curry irritates me
