Chillies add a ton of flavour to dishes. Besides adding a vibrant colour, it also increases appetite. It is cheap and easily available all over, making it a popular food of peasants who have Rotis with raw onion and Chilli. It has been regularly used throughout India for its antibacterial qualities.
