Spicy food can often result in a burning sensation in your mouth or on your tongue. This is a guide about stopping the burn from spicy food.
If you cook something that is very hot and spicy, I suggest that you serve it with some milk to drink with the meal. Milk products help stop the burn left in your mouth from hot, spicy food. Also, you could have ice cream or something like that for dessert!

Plain yoghurt also has very good cooling effect when eating too spicy food.
When I ate spicy Indian food, they also served a cucumber and yogurt salad with it. This was a nice contrast, and very cooling. I'll bet any milk product would go well.
