THE BASICS
[chi-OH-tay] Once the principal food of the Aztecs and Mayas, this gourdlike fruit is about the size and shape of a very large pear.

Chillis
Also called Chilli Peppers and Chili Peppers
Including hot peppers such as poblano peppers and jalapeños
See also Bell Peppers (Sweet Peppers)

THE BASICS
Pungent chilli pods play an important role in the cuisines of Africa, China (Szechuan region), India, Mexico, South America, Spain and Thailand. There are more than 200 varieties, over 100 of which are indigenous to Mexico. They vary in length from a huge 12 inches to a 1/4-inch peewee. Some are long, narrow and no thicker than a pencil while others are plump and globular. Their heat quotient varies from mildly warm to mouth-blistering hot.

Note: These recipes use chillis as 'vegetables'. Many other recipes on A Veggie Venture use chillis for flavor.

Cucumber

THE BASICS
Believed to have originated in either India or Thailand, the cucumber has been cultivated for thousands of years. This long, cylindrical, green-skinned fruit of the gourd family has edible seeds surrounded by a mild, crisp flesh. Unless waxed, the thin skin need not be peeled. English hothouse cucumbers can grow up to 2 feet long and are virtually seedless.
