A word of warning: Green chilli can most definitely be just as hot LOL
It's size that makes a different, not colour. The smaller it is the hotter it is. Big long banana chilli are kind of like a peppery capsicum - not worth eating if you ask me - but tiny bullet chilli will take the top off your head.
I suppose I could but I don't want to. I did eat one of the Bird's Eye chillis off the bush in our yard raw to see how hot they were. It was okay but I won't do it again, I prefer them cooked. My two year old ate one of them and was clawing at his mouth and sobbing, poor little guy. Still, it's probably good that he learns not to just pick things and eat them unsupervised.
I love spicy food ! I can eat raw chili but I try not to do that. My mom makes these chillies in various forms (still raw). They go really well with ginger slices, vinegar, lime juice. They can be stuffed and stir fried for few minutes. Yum !
No, don't see the point of eating this burning sensation! A small amount in some food is okay however I am very over the fact there is so much chilli in so many grocery items these days! What a way to spoil the flavour of food...
I don't go out of my way to have them, but once when I was visiting India I decided to try some as all the local were doing so. One or two were tolerable, but after that it was a bit too much...my eyes and nose started to run, so I knew I'd had enough.
