Where would curries be without the chilli pepper?
This fiery vegetable originated in the Americas, as did the potato and the tomato. Often considered one of the essential ingredients of a good curry, chilli peppers were actually introduced and cultivated around the world by Portuguese traders during the 16th Century. It is believed that chilli peppers have been a part of the human diet in the Americas since at least 7500 BC, with archaeological evidence at sites located in south western Ecuador that chilli peppers were cultivated more than 6000 years ago.
Red chillies contain large amounts of vitamin C and small amounts of carotene (pro-vitamin A). Yellow and especially green chillies (which are essentially unripe fruit) contain a considerably lower amount of both substances. In addition, peppers are a good source of most B vitamins, and vitamin B6 in particular. They are very high in potassium, magnesium and iron. No wonder we all feel good after eating a curry!
