The Lady Finger Pepper, also know as Jwala, is the most popular hot chili grown and used for spicy dishes in India.
Chiles are cholesterol-free, saturated fat-free, low calorie and high in fiber. Capsicums contain more vitamin A than any other food plant. Chiles provide an excellent source of vitamin C and the B vitamins, plus significant amounts of iron, thiamine, niacin, magnesium and riboflavin. Capsicums increase the metabolic rate and are excellent for the weight-conscious. The thermic effect of chilis requires six grams of chilis to burn off an average of 45 calories in three hours.
