History of Hot Chili Powder
Chili pepper belongs to the genus Capsicum, which is derived from the Greek word ‘Kapsimo’ meaning ‘to bite’. Hence, when eaten, the chili gives off a burning sensation. Chili pepper was widely used in the cuisines of Central and South America due to the hot and spicy flavor. Moreover, it gained popularity for its use as a decorative item, graduating to be a foodstuff and medicine. With Christopher Columbus setting on a journey from Portugal to discover spices, he landed in South America and found the chili. He named them ‘peppers’ simply because they tasted similar to black peppers. He brought them to Spain and spread them to Europe first, and then to South Asian countries, particularly India and China. Soon, it became a part of prime spices used in the local cuisines. Today, chili peppers are cultivated in all over the world.
