What's your spice level on a scale of 1 - 10?

I usually order food between 6 and 7. I can't stand too spicy food. Sometimes the excess spice kills the flavor and all you can taste is Mirchi. I prefer subtle flavors , where I can taste all the spices.

5.5 - 6.5 for me. Ears start smoking when spice level goes beyond 8.

For some reason, I do like onion chili utthappam though

Re: What's your spice level on a scale of 1 - 10?

When I eat my favorite foods- iidli, Dosa, I need extremely spicy and masaale-daar daal - I eat at least 10-12 vataki daal,… and also when eating,… samosa, kachori, bhajiya, daal-vada, medhu-vada, Bhel, chat, ragdo-petis, khaman, dhokla, papadi, long gaanthiya, fafda, ghar ki paani-poori, Cut-less, .. etc.. I need very spicy and hot chutney, also green oil fried peppers, and 3-4 diff kind of tasty chutney, tomato soup,.. etc and such,..

I have NO sweet tooth,.. so not much affinity with, icecream, ras-gulla, gulab-jambu, sri-khand, baasundi, raas-malaayi, doodh-paak, lapasi, sheera,.. and such any sweets,…
Few Pedas, barafi, mohan-thaal,.. are coming so sweet ( Shihore/Bhavnagari ? ) I hate those chini-chasani shitt,…!

My spicy tongue factor be - 8.0 around,…

Though, it’s not advisable to eat such iimli and baking soda,.. waali tasty things on a daily basis,..

Re: What's your spice level on a scale of 1 - 10?

Looks like every one has a different scale here. Jagguji's 8 (idli vada) would hardly be 3 for me. I used to have 10 mirchi bajjis at go when I was in Bangalore/ Hyderabad. But once I ordered spice level 10 at a Thai restaurant in Kallu pai's gaon and it was a bit spicy even for me. I did brace it and finish it though.

And I was able to take a drop of this though it readily made me utter BC, MC etc

Re: What's your spice level on a scale of 1 - 10?

^^
I know,…. in barbecue, some hot chilli sauces….;. are really really hot,.. made from some special tikhi mirchi, from some country,..

Kaan-gaan sab mein se dhoovaan niklega,..
[ They say,… Jab raat hai iitni mat-waali,… toh subah kaa aalam kya hoga ! ]

But when I say spicy, I meant not only peppery,.. but also,.. khattash /sour, Salty, Vinegaar, onion and garlic, Teekhaash, iimly, baking soda, Kokam, Soonth, Ganthoda, , ginger powder, Crust of chai/daal ka garam masala,..Eno- fruit salt, aadoo/ginger, mango crust / aamoliya ka powder,.. Mint, leemda/curry patta, kothmeer, fudino, onion, Garlic,.. and such all,… in equal strong proportion,..

Mzaa aa jaata hai,… daal-iidi ya Dosa Sambhaar mein,…. Agar jo, daal ka swaad achhchha ho,..

Whenever I was used to go to india, I used to visit (without fail ) all “ Jyoti sangh, aarya samaaz, Maheela mandal bhandaar, Khaddi Graamodyog Yojna Bhadaar and such related all sahakaari ( Mango-men’s ) Seva-Mandal stores
and whatever they have packs of spicy,….. ( made by their own, of different proportion,.. )

Doodh/chai ka garam masala
Daal-shaak ka masaala
Iidli- sambhaar ka masala
Dhin-vada/ pavun-bhaaji/Bhel/Chat/paani-poori ka masaala,…
Samosa, Kachori, Cutlesss / sandwich ka masaala/paste,.. yada yada,..

I used to buy all such packs and in tons ( though, now-a-days it’s also sold in local Indian markets in US also, a lot,… ), a decades ago, during my India visits,..

Sorry, but I have NO sweet tooth,….. hence, not that much affinity for sweet items,..

However be alert now-a-days in India, as almost all of the paani-poori/gol-gappe waale,… paani mein Toilet cleaner, dilute kar ke milaate hai,…. Sort of Vinegaar ke taste ke vaaste,…. Aur khan eke soda ke bajaaye,… Kapra dhone ka soda jo daalte hai,.. and you get,.. ulcers and burning-spots in fefde,..

There are some South American chilis that are supposed to be the spiciest in the world.

I was there in 2007 in that Thai restaurant visit. I was also briefly there last year. But I went with biwi and bachcha and from a previous experience where a potential meeting with another echarchan bombed because I had to do other stuff like take kids to zoo while the ladies shopped, did not even ping you to avoid any disappointment.
