It's also worth remembering that spicy doesn't mean 'hot'. It's chillis that make a recipe hot, but all the other spices are for flavour. There are loads of recipes from different parts of India( It's a huge country) that are creamy with coconut and spices, or have lots of herbs rather than spices.
Spices are also used in recipes across the world, for example cinnamon buns, pumpkin latte, southern fried chicken, jerk chicken, pepperoni and salami.
Best thing is to experiment with recipes, then you'll discover a whole world of tastes.
