Chillies originally came from warm northern regions of South America. In time, the use of chillies was introduced to other countries and they were brought to Australia because of the culinary influences of the Asian diaspora. Chillies are a popular ingredient in many different cuisines.
Chillies are not just a hot ingredient in many dishes but they also help in digestion.
Chilli are grown in temperate regions of Australia as they need warm frost free weather.
Check with your local green grocer before buying chillies as some are much hotter than others.
