Have you ever wondered why people in Africa, India, Southeast Asia or other hot weather regions love spicy food so much? Because spicy food cools you down!
When you are eating spicy food, it increases your metabolism, blood circulation and bring a cooling effect of your body when you sweat. Comparing with ice cream, sodas or frozen bananas, this is much more effective and long lasting.
Let's cook a spicy curry to cool your body down in this hot summer. Below is my gluten free, dairy free vegetarian recipe. Change tofu to chicken or any other kind of animal proteins you love if you are not a vegetarian like me. Be creative and fun! Bon appetite.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
