How hot can you take it?
Markets and food stalls abound with hot red and green chilies. They are used in everything from salads to stir fries to curries. Most often the cook would ‘westernize’ the recipe for us and, where they might usually throw a handful (seriously!) in, they would only pick one or two.
Believe me, that was enough! The Thais definitely like it hot though and wouldn’t even break a sweat eating such spicy food.
