Chilli is a vegetable that has only ended up being a taste giver but do you know about some unknown traditional facts about chilli. People only remember it for adding spiciness into their food. Nobody bothers about what was the actual existence of chilli pepper(we are not talking about the hardworking chefs!!). Basically, it was found out by our ancestors who migrated from place to place in search of taste and food.
Like fire, they experimented with many things and then concluded about its actual utilization. Further, the time moved on and people ended up being so busy that they forgot about their own traditions.

Many of you think that chilli truly belongs from Mexico but that is not the whole truth. Some of you might also believe that Texas was the original place for the birth of chilli. But this is also half as there as many countries which together combined for giving rise to chilli. And the combination came from Texas, Mexico, Spain, and America. Moreover, the traditional chilli in all the above-mentioned countries is different from us. That basically depends upon their taste buds.
