That's usually the problem, Tony...when it is all about the heat and not the flavour...it's like some kind of a contest to see who can stand the most pain.

I like very hot spicy food, but, it has to tickle the taste buds as well as provide that nice "burn" we all love.

What do you recommend to eat or drink (non-alcoholic) after eating very spicy food to effectively cool your scorched mouth and tongue? I usually have chocolate ice-cream with chocolate sauce.

Therein lies the art of Indian cooking, to not kill the flavours with heat. Some chefs are better at it than others.

Best thing after spicy food is to eat or drink nothing that will spread the heat. Plain bread is a good option as the bread will absorb the spiciness. With the meal itself, I always order a plain naan. Of course, mileages will differ according to individual heat tolerances and pain thresholds.

Here's something I've often wondered about. Hot spicy foods seem to originate in hot countries - India, Mexico, etc. Why is that? I've heard theories about hot foods equalising internal body temperatures with outside temperatures. Seems a bit odd, that.

I believe the spices, herbs, peppers, etc. grow better (hotter) in hot climates ...

The way to deal with heat is already well known by the Indians...

Yoghurt! Either in Lassi (a yoghurt based drink, often drunk before the meal, to line the stomach and protect from the hot spices) or in Raita, a yoghurt, cucumber and mint condiment served with the meal. If you are faced with a curry that is a bit over the top, some raita on the side (or plain yoghurt if you don't want to change the flavor much) and it calms it down quickly.

In fact, any time you make something that the heat gets out of hand (you might have got an extra potent batch of chillies), stir in some yoghurt or sour cream, and much of the heat goes away.

And follow the meal with a light dessert made with milk or cream, maybe a nice cardamom flavored rice pudding or even simple ice cream, and tomorrow won't be quite as agonizing! stop

Hey Tony,
"At your age." Great point!!! You and I man great minds think alike!!!

Are you also one of the folks here that thinks that after playing music for 150 years that one might want to play something with more than 3 chords or, are you one of those folks who after 150 years of playing music is still doing ony three chords in the key of "E"? Ha ha!

Tony,

Come out to Colorado. We'll get along fine now that we understand each other. You'll just need to get use to my "BLOODY" Cajun accent. Ha ha!

I'll show you a place were people who have been career military, been all over the world, they tell me, and yet chose to live here in Western Colorado, on the Western Slope Of The Rocky Mountains.

Watch the John Wayne movie "True Grit" and if you like the scenery, if you come I'll drive you over to see it.

Don't invite me any where, I don't have bus fair to get to town now, lol.

By the time you get here I'll be a Hot Dog Man street vendor and I'll be able to take you anywhere we can drive.

I'd love to see England and Europe. How old can it get?
I just discovered a few years ago that I have a sister in Austria.

I recommend they make a movie of my Dad's military life. Ha ha!

Aren't you glad no one's made a comment about ruining a post by the subject change? I mean variety is the spice of life, right?

Who in the hell just wants to talk about Jazz all the time,or about sounds and more sounds, Geez that about as shallow as an empty pot eh?
