But no matter what the nature of the meal – whether heavy and spicy or light and bland, it will remain incomplete without the condiments that are so lovingly made and served.

If we are talking spice, we can’t go without red chillies. There is no denying that chilies enhance the flavours of the dish and make them all the more delicious, however, there is more to this unique ingredient than just flavour elevation. First and foremost, they are super important for your digestive health: they foster the secretion of certain digestive juices that prevent gastrointestinal problems like constipation and indigestion. Not just that, chilies are also great for anyone who is looking to lose some weight – it accelerates fat burning and reduces appetite, thereby lowering your food cravings. Red chilies also contribute towards better cardiovascular health by preventing formation of blood clots, and are also included in our meals to clear nasal congestion when you are down with the common cold. Were you aware of all these benefits offered by chilies?
