Happy Friday all of you, I have been following so many topics in IL for so many different reasons. I simply love this forum. Here I am with one of my questions: My 6 year old (2nd kid) eats ok, as long as it is not spicy. Not Spicy means absolutely 0% spicy. I live in US(East Coast) , NOVA area. With the amount of allergies and weather conditions I think (totally personal choice) she might catch less cold or fight cold if she could eat some level of spicy foods. It gets hard to travel/visit friends etc too with this constraint. Could any of you give me some tips on how to introduce spicy foods to her? Here is what I do: 1) Add little chile powder in dal tadka etc., 2) curries also i add a pinch of chile powder. 3) Add black pepper(miriyalu) to rasam and I make her drink some soup with pepper powder.. Other than these nothing more.. Any tried/known/heard tips would help. Thanks a ton ladies. Have a great weekend.
