Garlic is a plant in the Allium (onion) family.
It is closely related to onions, shallots and leeks. Each segment of a garlic bulb is called a clove. There are about 10–20 cloves in a single bulb, give or take.Garlic grows in many parts of the world and is a popular ingredient in cooking due to its strong smell and delicious taste.
However, throughout ancient history, the main use of garlic was for its health and medicinal properties.Its use was well documented by many major civilizations, including the Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese. Scientists now know that most of its health benefits are caused by sulfur compounds formed when a garlic clove is chopped, crushed or chewed. Perhaps the most famous of those is known as allicin. However, allicin is an unstable compound that is only briefly present in fresh garlic after it’s been cut or crushed. Other compounds that may play a role in garlic’s health benefits include diallyl disulfide and s-allyl cysteine). The sulfur compounds from garlic enter the body from the digestive tract and travel all over the body, where it exerts its potent biological effects.

Red chilli plant is an erect, branched, shrub-like herb with fruits used as garnishing and flavouring. Chillies are a common ingredient in many cuisines – Indian, Thai and Mexican to name a few. There are many different species, about 200 have been identified, all containing capsaicin, a biologically active ingredient beneficial to the respiratory system, blood pressure and heart. Capsaicin is the cause of the heat and has the effect of stimulating the palate and increasing blood circulation. This makes the body sweat, which in turn has a cooling effect. That is why chillies are so dominant in tropical areas.
The flavour and heat of chillies is quite addictive as endorphins are released to deal with the heat – no wonder chilli lovers are always looking for that chilli punch in their food. Some chillies produce rapid, sharp sensations at the back of the throat while others ignite a lingering, low-intensity burning on the tongue and middle palate. Heat ratings (with 10 the hottest) indicate the concentration of capsaicins and are a useful guide to judging heat levels. But each chilli will have its own flavour profile in addition to its heat level, and specific chillies are used to provide not only heat but additional flavours. And thus, combining chillies in a dish can increase its flavour complexity.
