It’s Monday again! Hope everyone will have a lovely week ahead!
BTW, do you know Koreans eat green chili as it is?
Usually dip in a miso paste.
My daughter started eating chili soon after she started solid food at 1.
*This photo was taken 3 years ago in Korea:)
She is always interested in what her Omma(mum in Korean) and daddy eat:)
And she is brave enough to try out!
Of course I give her not that spicy one when she eats chili.
There are usually two types of green chili at my home.
One is called “Oi-Gochu(Crunchy cucumber chili)” which is large and tastes refreshing like cucumber. Not really spicy. So usually we eat this chili just as it is:)
The other is “Cheongyang Gochu” which is small and very spicy. Actually this chili is hottest in Korea. I usually use this chili to kick it up a notch!
BTW, chili is an excellent source of vitamin A (beta-carotene) and vitamin C which improves your body metabolism!!!
Additionally, it helps you fight inflammation, it works for pain relief, it reduces blood cholesterol, clears congestion, boosts immunity and reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes, etc!!!
In Korean, people consume chilies in dishes daily basis.
Why don’t you try to eat chili occasionally:)
*If you have a week stomach, do you take much!!! It may hurt your stomach if you eat too much!
