comment What was Indian food like before the arrival of the chilli from South America?
Reasonably so, but not completely. My answer's entirely based off anecdotal/cultural knowledge, though a quick check on wiki confirms these are plausibly available reasonably far back. That said, we're pretty hidebound on things like this. If my mother was answering this, she'd probably back it up with references from classic tamil literature. I'd probably still consider this plausible.

comment How can vegans alleviate the effects of spicy food?
capsein is fat soluble which is the 'real' trick here. Water makes it worse since it dosen't actually bind with the chemicals

comment How to get rid of raw taste of Extra Virgin Olive oil?
Oil preferences are pretty hillariously regional. My mom insists on gingelly oil (we're tamil). I believe coconut oil is a kerala thing, since they're heavily coastal. We wouldn't imagine cooking with mustard oil, but there's parts of india where its the standard.
