Why do people in India eat such spicy food?


Spicy food is a funny thing__either you love it or hate it!

Those of us who eat it think its just wonderful__850 million Indians can't be wrong! Actually they're not. There are several good reasons why Indians and other people from hot climates eat spicy food.

The flavored spice of India is CURRY, which is really a mixture of several spices, such as Turmeric, Cayenne, Cardamom, Ginger, Coriander, Pepper, Chili, Mustard Seed, Cumin, and Cinnamon, among others.

Spices can make bland, unappealing food taste and smell better and improves one's appetite. This, however, is just one of the reasons why people add spices to foods. There are other practical purposes for spice. Because spices, like Curry, are "hot" they cause the body to sweat and thus help to regulate the body's temperature, making one feel cooler. For this reason, spicy foods are very popular in warm countries around the world. Spices in food also help to kill some germs and aid the digestion process.
