Definition

Unlike the ambiguous English word "hot", when you say a food item is "mirchi", you are unambiguously referring to the fact that it contains "mirch" or chilies (red or green). The Hindi word "teez" literally meaning "rapid" can be substituted.

Usage

"(sucking in air sound) this korma is too mirchi man!"
"too mirchi for you? take curd rice."
