'Hot' has more than one meaning. Is there a separate word for hot when talking about spicy food supposed to temperature-hot? As it is awfully confusing when talking about Indian food. In Indian cooking food can be spicy with many spices but is not 'spicy-hot'. Masala Chai is spicy tea with no 'spicy-heat'! It is also served piping hot meaning the temperature is high.
