I am privileged this month to be hosting Lyndsey's Sweet Heat Chilli Challenge. For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, the lovely Lyndsey blogs over at Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops and is a chilli-ophile :-) Every month a new theme is announced for the challenge, and the only requirement is that your recipe entry needs to have chilis/ chillis/ chilli peppers or peppers in it. Any kind of chili is accepted, mild or hot.
That said, this month's theme makes it really simple to have chilli in your recipe, as its that perennial spicy favourite, (East) Indian food. Indian food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world with reason. It can be hot and spicy, or with just a hint of heat and a myriad of spices. Hot, spicy and comforting, what more do we wish for? Any way you look at it, you cannot go wrong with it, especially after a month-long orgy of sweets, chocolates and decadent desserts.
So pull out those spices and grab those chillies and let's all be honorary (or real) Indians for this month :-)
