Chilies are integral and the most important ingredient in many different cuisines around the world as it adds pungency, taste, flavour and color to the dishes. Indian chili is considered to be world famous for two important commercial qualities—its colour and pungency levels. Some varieties are famous for the red color because of the pigment Capsanthin and others are known for biting pungency attributed to capsaicin. The other quality parameters in chili are length, width and skin thickness.
