So, what is red chilli pepper?

Red chilli pepper, also known as Capsicum annum, is a fiery and vibrant spice that adds a bold and zesty kick to any dish. It is commonly used in cuisines all over the world, and is a staple in many Mexican, Indian, and Thai dishes. The pepper's heat is derived from a compound called capsaicin, which triggers the release of endorphins and produces a sensation of warmth and pleasure. Besides being a flavor enhancer, red chilli pepper is also a rich source of vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants that promote healthy digestion and boost the immune system. Whether dried, powdered, or fresh, this versatile ingredient is a must-have in any kitchen that loves bold and spicy flavors.
