Man eats 3-kg chilly each day, says it keeps him healthy
Indians are known worldwide for their ‘fiery’ taste buds but one man has kicked his fetish for chillies a notch higher. Pyare Mohan is addicted to chillies, so much that he eats three kilos of hot peppers a day. Be it fresh green chillies, red hot pepper, black pepper or fine chilly powder, the 40-year-old father of three is not satiated until he chews them down as a side meal. Mohan’s incredible appetite has made him a mini-celebrity in his tiny village in Madhya Pradesh in central India. People come from far and wide to catch a glimpse of Mohan as he sits with his meal and a plateful of chillies every day. Surprisingly, despite the overindulgence, the man has never complained of upset stomach or has fallen sick. Instead, he says chillies bring benefit to his health.
