How do I make spicy food less spicy near the end of meal preparation?
I like my food to be relatively spicy. Not everybody likes it so I sometimes overdo it when cooking with friends: near the end of the meal preparation, the food is too spicy for them and I know that they wouldn't enjoy it!
Oftentimes I add pure milk or other milk based products like cream, cheese or sour cream. A key problem with adding milk based products that everything besides pure milk changes the flavour of my meal. While it doesn't matter to me, I would still like to know if there are options which don't influence the flavour too much.
What are some alternatives so that I can make my meals less spicy near the end of meal preparation? (Food is still in the pan, pot or oven and has some time left to be completely done.)
