I usually enjoy medium curries.I have never liked REALLY hot spices, but the milder ones seem to let the other flavours come through the various ingredients in a curry. When I was a child, mum used to cook gorgeous curries, and she included pineapple as an ingredient.I just love what this adds to a rich medium heat beef curry.She also liked to cook it the day before we would be eating it so that the flavours really melded beautifully. I have been so lucky to have learned from such a great cook!
I used to love hot curries, my favourite being vindaloo. Now I have to have a mild one because of my dry mouth. If I have anything hot now with chilli in it, it makes my whole mouth, gums and tongue bleed, and I really mean bleed. I do miss the taste and enjoyment of a hot curry.
