Isn’t it strange how siblings that are brought up the same way and made to eat the same food sometimes develop very different taste bud preferences? My brother will not put a single spicy thing in his mouth. He has, however, eaten worms. And I don’t think I could do that.
Sorry, back to the issue of spiciness, on the contrary, if there were such a thing as being addicted to super hot spicy food, if it were one day scientifically proven, I would certainly put up my hand and claim to be so.
Would you eat worms? How are your tolerance levels to chilli?
Spicy Curry and Cumin Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe
From this years Halloween pumpkin, I wanted to make its pumpkin seeds seriously spicy, so I threw in a large amount of grated chilli flakes without thinking twice. If your hot and spicy tolerance levels aren’t so high, add less chili flakes. Or just omit them.
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili flakes
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Peel and chop the garlic into tiny pieces. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir. Pour and spread onto an ovenproof pan. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Take out and re-stir every 10 minutes.
